Michigan ACHCA Nursing Home Administrator Preparation Review
   

2019 State of Michigan and Federal
Nursing Home Administrator Examination Preparation Review


DESCRIPTION
The purpose of the preparation classes are to help you prepare to take both Core of Knowledge Exam for Long Term Care Administrators (CORE) and the Line of Service Exam (LOS)-Nursing Home Administrators (NHA).
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.

Core of Knowledge Exam for Long Term Care Administrators (CORE) and the Line of Service Exam (LOS)-Nursing Home Administrators (NHA)

The purpose of the CORE entry level competency examination is to protect the public by ensuring that entry-level administrators and executive directors have mastered the foundation of skills and knowledge for all long term care lines of service while demonstrating the skills and abilities essential to competent practice within the profession. The CORE and NHA exams 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. All domains of study from the National Association of Boards for Nursing Home Administration are covered in the training.

The NHA line of service exam measures the entry-level knowledge of nursing home administrators. The NHA examination is required as a component of licensure requirements in all states and the District of Columbia. The purpose of this licensing/ entry level competency examination is to protect the public by ensuring that entry-level administrators have mastered a specific body of knowledge while demonstrating the skills and abilities essential to competent practice within the profession.
