The HADM Concentration in Long-Term Care Administration prepares students for job opportunities in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult day care and work with chronically ill populations. Students complete a sequence of 40 credits of Health Administration, 21 credits of Business and 12 credits of Gerontology courses, as well as a 1000 hour HADM internship. Upon successful completion of the curriculum, students will have met the educational requirements of the Pennsylvania State Board of Licensure for Nursing Home Administrators and be eligible to take the state licensure examination for long-term care administrators. The HADM/LTCA track increases credits for the Health Administration degree to 134 credits. A 10-hour-per-semester service learning requirement is integrated into the HADM/LTCA course work.

The HADM/LTCA program is accredited by the National Association of Boards of Examiners of Long-Term Care Administrators (NAB) in Washington, D.C.
