Continuing education for RCFE administrators

Department Approval is required by training vendors, and we currently do not offer that specific approval. Continuing education hours must be sufficiently related by subject matter and logic to the Core of Knowledge, current and relevant to facility operations and care, and completed through courses approved for residential care facility for the elderly administrators by the Department.

However, CareAcademy offers 40+ CE classes and topics approved by the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB).

    Anthony Dawson, VP, Quality and Customer Experience, VNS Health
  • “The success of this new online training program expands our ability to attract and retain some of the best talent out there and to take care of our consumers now and in the future.”
    James Rolla, SVP, Partners in Care
  • “This platform gives staff the tools to know exactly what education they need to complete. If for some reason they fall behind on their courses, it’s very easy for us to identify. Then, it’s just a quick communication to that individual. CareAcademy automated this process, saving us a ton of time and reducing the potential risk of human error.”
    Chris Greene, Owner, Touching Hearts at Home, Westminster & Fort Collins, CO
