NAB conducts periodic research on the role delineation of long term care administration to determine the knowledge, skills and task of an administrator. The results of this research project, known as a job analysis study, is the basis for preparing administrators to enter the profession and to continue competency throughout their career. The domains of practice that result from the job analysis study are used to establish curriculum for academic programs, for administrator in training programs, for licensure examinations and for evaluation of continuing education programs.

The NAB and the Foundation of the NAB support and participate in collaborative initiatives to enhance the quality of care in America’s long term care communities in the interest of public protection.
