Specifically designed for registered nurses working in long term care, the AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep course provides comprehensive online training that leads to board certification in gerontological nursing by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for RNs.
Research released by AHCA/NCAL in 2019 found that nursing facilities with at least one ANCC Board certified RN experienced fewer deficiencies, had lower re-hospitalization rates, lower rates of off-label use of antipsychotics and were twice as likely to be CMS 5-Star facilities.
Nurses who complete Gero Nurse Prep show an average 24 percent increase between their pre- and post-course test scores. Gero Nurse Prep grads who choose to sit for the ANCC gerontological nursing certification exam ($395 separate fee paid to ANCC) have a pass rate of 95% on their first try. RNs who pass the ANCC exam can then use the GERO-BC™ credential after their RN credential. Nurses who complete the course will earn the credential GERO-BC™
Audience: All RNs and BSNs. ANCC has additional requirements that must be met to sit for the ANCC certification exam.
