Offered by UConn’s School of Business for over 40 years, the graduate certificate program has prepared 7 out of every 10 current skilled nursing-home administrators in Connecticut.

Alumni also serve in leadership roles in continuing care and assisted living communities, home healthcare agencies, hospice centers and more. The new collaboration with the School of Nursing brings the clinical care perspective into long-term care administration.

“Professional business leadership, combined with exceptional clinical care, is the ideal combination for patient care and institutional strength” – Dean John A. Elliott

The Certificate Program in Long-Term Healthcare Management is designed to meet all State of Connecticut requirements for long-term healthcare administration licensure. It is offered by the Schools of Business and Nursing and is fully approved by the State Department of Public Health. The primary objective of the program is to prepare students for careers in long-term health care management.

Over 99% of our students completing the program have successfully completed State of Connecticut Department of Public Health licensure examinations, and our program maintains the highest pass rate of all educational programs in Connecticut. The small, personalized nature of our program lends itself to on-going interaction between students and faculty, strong advisory support, and placement assistance upon completion of the program.
