The Long-Term Care concentration is designed to address the needs of the growing older population who need access to long-term care services (LTSS). The concentration provides the skills needed to lead and manage long-term care facilities, community-based services, and health care organizations working with our Kupuna.
The Long-Term Care concentration may be suitable for those interested in future careers in long-term care, nursing, medicine, health-related non-profits, and research and biomedical related fields. The concentration prepares students for professional schools such as medical school, physician assistant school, nursing school and graduate public health programs. Conferral of a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Long-Term Care does not result in professional NHA licensure.
The Long-Term Care Concentration courses are offered via distance delivery only. Some Long-Term Care Concentration courses could contain a course component that requires a face-to-face element, please contact the Long-Term Care faculty for additional information.
