Who Should Consider Taking this Certificate?
This certificate program is appropriate for nurses who are considering taking a job in the long term care nursing field, whether in a nursing facility, life care community, or assisted living or similar settings.
This course is also appropriate for nurses who have been working a long term care setting but have not had any formal education about the long term care setting.
I’ve been a hospital nurse for several years…..would this certificate help me?
Yes. It is an error to believe that if one has been an acute care nurse transition to being a well-trained long term care nurse is easy or intuitive. There is a set of rules and regulations for long term care nursing known as the Federal Requirements which is unique to long term care.
What You Will Learn
This certificate offers three general orientation courses to the long term care field….its laws, background, how it is shaped.
These more general courses are followed by four courses that familiarize you with the myriad of Federal Requirements that must be implemented in the day to day life of the long term care facility.
The final two courses offer a short introduction to infection control because there are many scary bugs out there such as the multi-drug resistant-pseudomonas-aeruginosa below.
