NAB Accredited HCA with LTCA Certificate Degree Program

What is a NAB Accredited HCA degree? 

The NAB Accreditation program at WKU is a great opportunity for students who are looking to climb higher with their Health Care Administration degree. When students complete this combination of programs, they will be graduating from a NAB Academic Accreditation Program - one of less that 15 in the United States! 

Students can obtain a National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) Accredited degree by completing a B.S. in Health Care Administration, paired with the LTCA Certificate Program and an approved 1,000 hour internship


"Accreditation is granted by the NAB Board of Governors to institutions that meet NAB's criteria for top quality education and training of long term care administrators. Moreover, students of NAB-accredited schools score higher than the national average on the NHA Exam and are best-prepared to work as long term care administrators."
