Clinical competency is fundamental to value-based purchasing and LTC companies need to demonstrate their clinical strength to be competitive with ACOs, MCOs and their local hospitals. Clinical competency is also important to CMS in annual survey inspections.

AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep [] does much more than just prepare RNs to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) board certification exam [] in gerontological nursing. 

It increases RNs’ knowledge of gerontological nursing practice. Gero Nurse Prep students see a whopping 24 percent average increase between their pre-and post-course test scores. 

Taking the AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep course does not obligate a RN to sit for the ANCC Board certification exam. Registered nurses who are interested in increasing their knowledge of gerontological nursing practice can simply complete the AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep course, receive 30 nursing contact hours, and increase their skills and knowledge of geriatric nursing.

The AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse prep course thoroughly prepares those RNs who want to take the ANCC [] Board certification exam in gerontological nursing. Gero Nurse Prep grads have a passing rate of 95 percent on the ANCC exam on their first try. AHCA/NCAL research shows that nursing facilities with at least one ANCC Board certified RN in gerontological nursing have lower rehospitalization rates and lower off-label usage of antipsychotics.
