This workshop provides the information and tools that will enable qualified, licensed nursing home administrators to become Certified Preceptors for Administrators in Training. Once the certified preceptor completes the 16 week AIT course with a candidate, the preceptor will receive a waiver for 10 of the 20 hours of continuing education units required to maintain their NHA license with the Arkansas Office of Long Term Care.
The facility-based instruction section of the AIT course is designed to provide the Administrator in Training with the opportunity to apply their academic knowledge to a practical environment in order to help solve the unique problems occurring in long term care facilities. During the 16-week course period, preceptors will act as supervisors as the trainees work closely with each department of the facility.
The preceptor course is offered immediately preceding each AIT course. Upon completion of the preceptor workshop, administrators will become Certified Preceptors for two years. Preceptors must have one AIT complete the program every two years to maintain certification.
Who should attend?
