Personalized, career-focused education on campus or online.
While many other colleges and universities offer long-term care administration as a specialization or subset of another program such as business administration, health administration or gerontology, Saint Joseph's offers one of the few degrees in long-term care administration itself. This degree program is one of the few in
the country accredited by the
National Association of Boards of Examiners of Long-Term Care Administrators (NAB), and the only NAB-accredited program available online.
