Yes, there are AIT programs available in Florida. What type of information are you looking for? Most of the details can be found on the Florida Department of Health website: www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nurshome/

Let me know if I can be of further assistance!

Suzanna in Hollywood, Florida said: Hi Erin,
thank you for your help with this. I have looked at the website and have fund some important information.I see there are some nursing homes that have preceptors, but I am not sure if they are offering the AIT program. Do you know, how I can get that information? Should I just contact some of those facilities?
I have recently graduated from FAU with a degree in Health Care Administration. I am very much interested in AIT program. I would like to work in a long-term care settings.

Hi Suzanna,

Here is a list of preceptors in Florida that are able to take on a Administrator-In-Training: www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nurshome/lst_preceptor.pdf

I would contact a few of these preceptors and hopefully, one of them will take you on. Don't forget your AIT program must be approved through the board. Good luck!

Best wishes,

Hi Melissa,

Congratulations on your potential move to the Lady Lake area. Here is a list of preceptors that could take on an AIT: www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/nurshome/lst_preceptor.pdf

I would recommend that you attend a Florida Health Care Association meeting. This is a good place to network with other administrators in the area. These meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month from 11:30am-1:00pm at the Ocala Hilton. The information is listed on the FHCA website, www.fhca.org . Jobs are also posted there too.

If you have more questions, don't hesitate to contact me. Good luck to you!

Hi Melissa,

Glad to hear you will be able to make it to the FHCA meeting. It normally has a decent turn out. People normally dress Business/Business casual.

I currently work in Home Health. If you want to stop by our office, just email at erin@nursinghometalk.com, and we can set up a time. Look forward to meeting you.

Does anyone know of any AIT programs in the Houston, Texas area? Also, if you sign on with a company in their AIT program does that mean they can send you anywhere? Any help would be appreciated. I have a BS in Health Care Administration and have been in sales for 15 years. I am getting a divorce and would like to return to LTC. I did two internships while in school in Kentucky.

Hello. Does anyone know about any AIT programs in the state of Alabama? I have been searching everywhere and I can't seem to find nothing. I have an undergraduate degree from the University of Alabama in Healthcare Management. I also have a MBA from the University of North Alabama. I love working with elderly people. My current position as a Business Office Manager at a SNF makes me more eager to find this program and enter. However, I have been unsuccessful. I'm willing to move to GA and possibly FL. Please help.

Hi there,
They never asked me any questions, they just asked for a resume and a letter explaining why you think you would be a good administrator. Thats it. They never asked for an interview, or even talked to me personnally. I just recieved in the mail Saturday, that they took me off their list for the AIT program because of creditonals and not enough experience. Believe me my mouth dropped. LPN for over 25 years, plus graduated with honors at a 4 year college, earning my Bachelors degree in HCA. I was totally dumb founded.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.

Hi Peggy. Sorry for your troubles. You say you have been an LPN for over 25 years, but does that include Nursing Homes? Also, have you had any supervisory positions (staffing coordinator, ADON, shift supervisor)? Perhaps they were looking for someone with more supervisory experience or nursing home experience (assuming you lack nursing home experience). Also, have you any experience in any other department of a nursing home? If so, that could be helpful on a resume for AIT.

Good luck in your search.

Hello again
Yes I have over 15 to 20 years in Nursing homes or LTC. I have been a Wellness Director,starting the program for an Assisted Living and it becoming successful, I have been Shift Supervisor for a few facilities, charge nurse at most of the LTC I worked at. So yes, I think I have the experience. I started working in LTC when I was 16 years old (52 now) and that was in the Kitchen, since that time, before getting my LPN license, I worked in the office, Housekeeping and Laundry, then after I gotten my license, I worked the floor, Medical Charts, Case Management, HEDIS, etc... I think possibly, it is who you know, not what you know. I am not giving up, even though I feel it is very political. Thank you for your response.

Hi Peggy. It does sound like you have a good background and you have a degree. So I'm not sure why NHC turned you down. But I do know that NHC is a very large company and maybe they just couldn't train all applicants they received. NHC is also a good company so I hope that them turning you down doesn't make you think too poorly of them.

I'm glad you aren't giving up. Getting into a program is difficult but I think if you do have the skills and experience, it will eventually work out for you. Keep searching and working for it. Good luck.

Does anyone know of an AIT program in the Dallas, TX area that also pays a salary along with the position. I realize it's not much of a salary, but since I can't work while doing through the training I will need even a small income.

I need a job so bad! I would like to be a Nursing home admin. I have a B.S. degree in Health Care Management and HR experience. I believe having experience in these fields are good backgrounds to have to run a facility. Although, I do not have a nursing home background I will like to take advantage of this program. Please let me who is willing to accept me with these qualifications, I am willing to relocate. Thanks

I know in Texas you must complete the 200 hours Nursing Home Administrator course and 1000 AIT program before being allowed to take the State and Federal exams.

I am also seeking a facility that has the 1000 AIT program. I am finding they are not as available as what we need. I also am needing one that pays a salary since I won't be able to work during this period, and that is even more difficult to find.

I wish you luck and would just advise to keep searching and surely you will find one.

Here in Tennessee, the State will not allow you to sit to take your test either until you have finished and AIT program. I graduated with Honors, have been and LPN for over 25 years, held supervisory positions, did financing and accounting for 2 other businesses when they both first opened,(which both are still very successful). I have good references, 1 which is from my Congressman, yet I am still unable to find a preceptor. I have applied to everything from lucrative LTC to undesirable. I have visited, called, attended conferences, made my face very available. Does anyone have any ideas?
I have found that it is not what you know, it is who you know. Which isn't fair, because those of us who have some experience, or who has been in the medical field most of their careers and then continue to increase their knowledge don't get chosen for the positions. I see many job postings for Administratior in many LTC facilities across the nation, yet they can't get them filled. So the jobs are out their, but nobody wants to train those who needs to finish their training, to take those positions.
I don't understand this, however I am not going to give up and I hope everyone else trying to get into and AIT program don't give up either.
