WARNING, WARNING: I just left a NHA job in which I worked for a year and I want to warn all other administrators.If you work in a nursing home which is part of a community as in ALF or Independent living make sure you are the one in charge of the community. I was not and I found myself being micromanaged on a daily basis by someone with 1/2 my education and experience. Yet the company considered him the Executive Director whereas I was the administrator. I got no support from the primarily ran A...

Do not change a thing, Learn what the ownership wants. Staff can run you out of your facility quicker than anything. I am talking about sabataging your career. Unless you have the complete power to hire, fire, and reward unconditionally, you are a fiqure head. A Director of Nursing is the main power head at any facility. This is how to survive. 1. Do what the ownership wants first. 2. Get your survey readiness binder up to date. 3. Get out of the facility at 5PM.Nobody likes the administrator th...
Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?Where are the jobs? Which places have the most nursing home administrator opportunities?
How about becoming a teacher? If you can deal with the travel commitment, there are companies that provide continuing education courses for NHAs, RCFEs, and RNs. Hook-up with one of them and put your decade of experience to good use! I'm sure that your State licensing office can provide you with a listing of approved CEU vendors. In California, the pay rate for an instructor is about $300 plus your travel expenses are all reimbursed.
I planning to move to Houston Texas in May 2008. I have a NHA License in FL and want to prepare for the Texas exam, where can I get the current regs and application information?
I have barely begun my NHA career and I am already unbelievably burnt out! From having no staff, to pressure to build census, and difficult to manage residents, I barely sleep! I am looking for a new career because I just can't take this pressure! HAs anyone transitioned from being an administrator to another related profession with success? How do you handle the stress of the job?
Please help?????????I have tried numerous website to find how to start the process of becoming licensed. I have a LBSW and a MA in Family Studies. Will I have to take many courses?
It crasy to see how professionals are begging for years just to have A PRECEPTOR TO OFFER an AIT POSITION. unfortunately, before you know, it has been more two years since preceptors are playing you around. Stop looking from the inside, get out and know that there is more than one ways to go to ROME, SAID THE PROVERB. If only people can listen to advices things would be better. NO NEED FOR AIT TO TAKE THE NAB NHA TEST. YOU CAN TAKE THE NURSING HOME ADMINISTRATOR TEST IN 2 STATES IN USA WITHOUT H...
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.
I have recently completed my degree in Healthcare Administration. I need to get my foot in the door and was informed that an AIT is the best and ideal option. My question is does anyone know how to locate a list of those facilities in my or any state? After applying to many locations I now know that I must find locations that 1) Have an administrator that is a preceptor, 2) offers an AIT program, and 3) has an opening for such a position. I can find these lists for Florida but if anyone knows ho...
Hi All; I have been a LNHA for 3 years now. I suspect that like me, the majority of you chose this profession to make a difference in the lives of our Residents. I have been in the industry for almost 30 years and have worn many hats (SW, Surveyor and now LNHA). It seems to me that the current LTC environment is NOT conducive to quality patient care. The MOM & POP nursing homes have met their demise & have been replaced by the large corporations. Profits before people has become the norm. Sadly ...
I have a master's degree in Business Administration specialization in healthcare management and over ten years of experience in the healthcare industry as Behavioral Mental health. I am looking for an AIT training program in New Jersey on a License preceptor that would be willing to let me complete my AIT state-required hours under them at their facility.I am aware that not being pay during the program to be under a preceptor, this would be an unpaid position, and I am okay with that. I have the...
I am searching for an AIT program in Indiana. It seems quite difficult to get the right information and most wth knowledge refuse to speak all together. How can I get through this maze and find the right program willing to accept me. I am finishing a MBA with 20 years of healthcare experience including much long term experience. Please help...anyone!Thanks Larry
I have recently sent in my application to take my state and federal boards and wonder if anyone has any advise for preparing for them. I have no reason to believe that I would be denied taking them. I have a BS in Health Care Systems Administration and have worked in Long Term Care for 8 years working my way up from a certified nursing assistant, and now the Nursing Administrative Assistant for a 55 bed LTC facilty. Any comments would be welcome.ThanksElizabeth
Don't go into this occupation. Indiana is the only state that has a AIT preceptor program. Danger- You will be unemployed more than any other medical leadership role that you may go into. Read my posts if really interested. Turn over in this field is 1-1.5 years. Any more than that is the very lucky exception." Well, that is they way it is in Illinois. How would you like to earn above $70K for one year and a half and then make $9,000 a year every 1.5 months for six months getting unemployment. T...

I have an AABA in Human Resources Management. I really have been relentless looking for an AIT program. Can someone please help me?
Hello everyone, I currently have a MA in Human Services/Business Management I have worked in AL as a ED in Texas off and on about 5 years I also have 4 years in a hospital setting which I guess does nothing for me. I am about to have an opportunity to work in the OKC area not related to NHA but I could take the AU REQUIRED however are there preceptors available? Has anyone received their license in Oklahoma? Thank you for your time!!
I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Health Care Administration. It is my hope to find a paid AIT program.. literally anywhere in the United States. Right now I live in OH, and while it would be ideal to find one close to home, I am willing to relocate and get licensed in another state. I have been entertaining the thought of leaving OH anyway. For those that have found AIT programs, what steps did you take to find it? I have called around locally and have had no luck with finding a ...
I’m very interested in knowing where I might be able to find the book? I’ve heard some wonderful things about it & can’t seem to find it anywhere. Please help with at least the authors name. Thanks in advance.

I have a 2yr degree in nursing and I am a RN. I have worked in LTC for 10yrs. I took my NHA exam in June 2007 and passed, but I am having problems obtaining a position as an administrator. Everyone requires at least 2 yrs experience. How do I get my foot in the door.
Hi,I have a question or two to perform some market research with the members here. Not exactly job related but I figured I'd try. I work for a medical transport question and recently was tasked with drumming up some new business. We are a small family owned company with little experience in marketing. My question(s) I would like to ask: How would you as administrators prefer to be approached by a sales person from a transport company seeking to service your facility? Dropping by unannounced, pho...
Hello fellow current and future Administrators.I recently obtained my MHA and have a undergraduate degree in Healthcare Management and Gerontology. Due to these degrees and their internship requirements I am qualified to take my exam in a number of states without an AIT requirement. However, I would like to conduct an AIT program regardless if it is a requirement for the experience.Here's my questions:Does it make sense to first take the exam and obtain my license (currently looking at Colorad...
I have worked in nursing homes as a CNA/QMA for over 10 years and have recently completed my bachelor's degree in healthcare administration. I am continuing my education and will receive my master's in healthcare administration and business management in about 18 months.
Does anyone out there have any Idea how to stop linen in their medical facility from being horded by the aides? We have clean linen carts that are (frankly)not that clean. Everyone and then some seem to find their way inside of the carts (dirty hands and all) and when that's not going on, the aides are taking the linen and hiding more than their share.I need help finding a solution as to how I could transport smaller amounts of linen to each resident without using such large carts.
