Administrator-in-Training Pathway

First off, I would like to start by thanking everyone who has voiced their opinions with the new Administrator-in-Training pathway which will open up opportunities to those hard-working talented individuals.  They have put the time and effort to learn what must be done to run the daily operations in the nursing home or assisted living facility, but they only need that little help from the legal system, a certificate. I appreciate the time and effort from everyone to make this pathway a reality, yet I am only asking for the Administrator-in-Training program to be easy to find, and for anyone who is eligible to be able to attend the program. I am only suggesting having a community college or a university to teach the theory, but the practical aspect could be taught at a hospital or long-term facility. This will alleviate the extra work for the preceptors for them to focus on teaching the daily tasks of the operations. The nursing program is well organized and has clinical rotations at hospitals or long-term facilities. Just a tought.
