The purpose of the preparation classes is to help you prepare to take both the State of Michigan and the Federal Nursing Home Administrator Examinations.
Each class is designed to help you to tactically prepare and manage your study time. From each class you will have a better understanding of the test’s purpose, content and focus. You will also discover your areas of strength and disciplines requiring additional study.
The curriculum for both days includes experiences from previous test takers and the knowledge of many Licensed Nursing Home Administrators from the American College of Health Care Administrators. You will receive tips for studying and test taking, an overview of labor law, management, finance, safety, physical plant, clinical care and residents’ rights with a state and federal perspective.
State of Michigan Review Class
The state of Michigan’s exam is extremely regulation focused, and the class curriculum reflects this. The review class provides handouts on topics including the Life Safety Code as written by the National Fire Protection Association, Michigan’s Public Act 368, Michigan Employment Security Commission rules, Michigan Medicaid rules, Public Act 139, Worker’s Compensation law and the differences between state and federal law. The class will also cover the criteria for being approved to sit for the tests, the basics of the application, and how to register for a test.
Federal Review Class
The federal test requires vast memorization, plus interpretation and analysis – all across five domains of study. The course includes a study outline for the five domains, plus real world examples to help with how questions may be asked and how to break the questions down to get the “best” or “most right” answer from the choices. Throughout the day you will receive ten quizzes to assess your strengths in Resident Care and Quality of Life, Human Resources, Finance, Physical Environment and Atmosphere, and Leadership and Management. All domains of study from the National Association of Boards for Nursing Home Administration, are covered in the training.
