Academic Accreditation

NAB's Academic Accreditation Program is open to colleges and universities offering a baccalaureate or graduate degree in long term care administration.

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.
