LSUA Elder Care graduates pass the NAB certification examination.

LSU of Alexandria is proud to announce the Spring 2014 Elder Care Administration graduates earned a 100% pass rate for the National Association of Boards examination.

Cody Begnaud, Melissa Brister, Eryn Dopson, Terri Jensen and Kenneth Seal all passed the board on their first attempt after receiving their bachelor degree from LSUA. 

LSUA is the only university in the state of Louisiana to offer a bachelor degree in Elder Care Administration. The degree is designed to prepare students to apply managerial principles to the administration of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult day care, home health services and other long term care setting and agencies serving the elderly and disabled.

“The program is multidisciplinary in that it includes courses taught by faculty from various LSUA academic departments and includes instructions in social and clinical aspects of aging, health care delivery systems, nursing home administration, aging policy and government programs, ethics and more,” said Dr. Haywood Joiner, chair of the Department of Allied Health.

Students must also complete a minimum of 1,040 hours in an internship as an administrator in training once their academic course work is complete.

Once all degree requirements have been met, students must then sit for the NAB certification examination.

“These students walk out of LSUA with a degree and license and ready to go to work,” said internship program director Harold Gamburg. “We are excited about the program.  Students are able to be gainfully employed and earning a competitive salary upon graduation.”
