Ashley in Grand Rapids, Michigan

68 months ago

I am graduating with my Masters in Health Administration in April of 2009. I have interned with 2 nursing home facilities and would like to start my career in long term care when I graduate. I believe that AIT programs are a good way to start, however, I would need a paid position. Are there any AIT programs in the Chicago area or in West Michigan?

I just put in for a position for the AIT program at HCR manorcare and they sent me a response saying that they appreciate my interest but they are going to continue their search. I have a bachelors in gerontology from Madonna U and I am in my grad program for Hospice. I have been in the gerontology field for over 17 years, so I am wondering what are the qualification that they are looking for.

Hi Dioone do you have your license at this point? They usually require you to have a license prior to selecting an AIT person. I will sit for the test in 2 weeks. I see many postings for AIT but none seem to hire unless a license is already acquired. chat with you soon thanks

With a Masters degreee look into working at a hospital and work your way into the executive ranks. Better pay, benefits, and increase job security. You can even work for the State you live in. Search what other jobs you can do with your Masters in Senior Services. Many jobs are out there.

Hi Asley, I live in the metro Detroit area and I could not find an AIT program. What I did was called a nursing home Administrator and ask her if she could train me under her. Unfortunately I am not getting paid, it is like an internship. However, you may want to call the different nursing homes in that area and they may be able to assist you with finding a paid program. Hope that helps

Hello Charmaine,
I live in North Miami and I have been looking for and AIT program. I graduated in Feb 2008 with my masters in Healthcare Administration and have been working as assistant administrator in and Assisted Living Facility since Mar 2007. Recently I started to contact nursing homes but without success of finding an AIT program paid or unpaid anywhere in Florida. I would even consider moving. One would think in Florida with all it's nursing homes it would be easy to find such a program. Good luck in your search. I hope we do find a program soon.

Hi Mohan, I have gotten an Assistant Administrator's position, it is my understanding that after a year with this experience I will be able to sit for the boards.Discuss this with your former administrator, good luck and keep me informed.

Charmaine,
Thank you for the response. I am happy to hear that you have found a position as Assistant Administrator. Are you in Florida or New Jersey. Initially I thought the email read that you are in Miami. However today I see Cherry Hill NJ. I am asking because you said that after one year as AA you could write the boards. As far as I know in Florida one need to have the AIT program, a 2 year training program.
If you are in Florida maybe the rules have changed and I am not aware of it.
again many thanks for the response and advice.

Hi Randy,
I am in Florida, it is my understanding that after (1 year AA )experience on the job this would make me eligible to take the exams.

I am trying to figure out how one becomes a Nursing Home Administrator. What is the process? Do you need a degree in certain field(s)? plus training ? From the boards it appears that you need to do an AIT -which I assume is admin in training - then take some grueling exams and then are ready for a position? Thanks in advance for spelling it out for me.

Hi,
For information on becoming a nursing home administrator in FL go on the internet and seek out the board of nursing home administrators or training for nursing home administrators, this should give you links to the requirements for a nursing home admin in FL. I must add that the Administrator in Training Program is required. I am sure you will read of many who are searching for one of these programs (including myself). It appears that these programs are very few and very competitive so be care in approaching this field as a career. Best of Luck.

I have a BSBA in accounting but with the current job market and the unhappiness with my current job, I have decided to pursue a job that has both intrinsic and extrensic rewards; a nursing home administator. I worked as a cook/pm supervisor in a home for seven years and I enjoyed it so I think this would be a good fit for me. I just sent off my application to the state of Missouri to qualify to sit for the exams and I am looking for good study material for both the state and federal exams. And I would like to find an AIT position in the Kansas City metro. Any guildance would be greatly appreciated.

I'm a recent graduate with a Bachelor's Degree of Health Admin. I'm looking for an AIT program in New Orleans, Mobile, or anywhere in Florida. I know its a broad geographical range, but I'm planning on moving wherever I can find an opening. The catch is, I'm looking for a paid program. I've learned that some of the bigger companies pay you, then set you up with a job as a nursing home admin assistant. I'm having a hard time finding which companies these are. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Dear NHA seekers you need a minimum of a Bachelors degree and a university sponsored or State Board AIT program before you can sit for the National exam and the State exam(if required in the State you are seeking licensure). You need to check with the licensing Board in the State in which you want to get a license to make sure you fullfill all of the Board requirements (FL and CA are some of the most rigorous states for licensing).

There are very few paid AIT position in the LTC field.
