About This Event

This ongoing course is being offered through IHCA/INCAL education partner, VGM Education/CE Solutions. VGM Education/CE Solutions provides high quality training and education to our members to enhance their skill-set and the quality of care delivery.

Earn your Preceptor certificate and six CEU’s! IHCA/INCAL’s online Preceptor course is the first of its kind in Indiana offering convenient, cost-effective, and quality education.

The state guidelines for receptor curriculum list five topics and eleven areas of focus. Our Preceptor course incorporates thirteen additional subject areas such as Aspects of Aging, Marketing & Sales, Insurance, Legal Aspects, and Public Relations. We believe these skill sets are important for an AIT to acquire from his or her Preceptor.

  1. Beginning and completing the AIT plan, How to conduct the AIT program, Completing and submitting forms, and Exam preparation
  2. Administration, Personnel, Rehab and allied health professionals, and Medical Director
  3. Nursing, MDS, Medical Records
  4. Aspects of aging, Admissions and social services, Marketing and sales, and Business office
  5. Dietary, Activities, Housekeeping and laundry, Maintenance/environmental services
  6. Insurance, Legal aspects, Public relations, Corporate compliance, HIPAA and confidentiality
  7. Abuse prevention and prohibition, Resident rights, and Standards of competent practice
  8. Adult learner, Management, and Supervision

In order to qualify as a preceptor, an applicant is required to be a currently licensed Indiana HFA to precept an applicant seeking licensure as an HFA or RCA, or an RCA to precept an applicant seeking licensure as an RCA.

Preceptors can order the Administrator-in-Training Domains of Practice Internship Manual through NAB. This revised edition of the NAB/AIT Internship Manual offers a detailed set of AIT activities based on the five major practice areas, or domains, of nursing home administration. Suggests a sequence and time division through the eleven departmental areas. Permits a nearly one-to-one relationship between AIT activities and preparation in the knowledge base deemed necessary for persons seeking licensure. References to nearly all of the elements of the domains of practice.
