After being administrator of eight facilities, ranging from 30-350 beds, I say spend two years and go to RN school. Doing all the work you have to do for an NHA license is insane. All that work to be nothing more than a pawn for the corporate bosses. You think you're running the facility, wrong. You think you're there to help people, wrong. The corporate bosses run the facility, the department of health runs the facility, the staff runs the facility, the nurses run the facility, all the administrator can do is run to keep up and take the heat when it all comes tumbling down.
When the s**t hits the fan, only then, suddenly, you're the guy in charge and you're the guy that gets fired and the corporate bosses just bring in the next one, while they shake their heads at what an incompetent boob you were....GO TO RN SCHOOL.
