2023 AIT Certified Preceptor Application
Arkansas Health Care Foundation

This workshop (hosted via webinar) will provide information and tools that will enable qualified, licensed nursing home administrators to become Certified Preceptors for the AHCF Administrator-In-Training (AIT) Program. Following the 16-week AIT course, the certified preceptor will receive a certificate for 10 continuing education units to be included with the 20 required to maintain their NHA license with the Arkansas Office of Long Term Care. 

The facility-based instruction component of the AIT course is designed to provide AIT students with the opportunity to apply academic knowledge in a practical environment, in order to find solutions to the unique challenges facing long term care facilities. During the 16-week course period, preceptors will act as supervisors to their AIT student.
