Gero Nurse Prep Raises Geriatric Nurse Competence, Lowers Re-hospitalization Rates
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. AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep prepares RNs for the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)’s board certification test in gerontological nursing – the GOLD standard in demonstrating clinical excellence in geriatric patient care. Recent analyses conducted by AHCA/NCAL show that nursing facilities with ANCC certified nurses have lower re-hospitalization rates, lower rates of off-label anti-psychotic use and are twice as likely to receive a 5-Star rating from CMS.
The Gero Nurse Prep program provides great value and increases the average experienced RN’s score on his/her knowledge of gerontological nursing by 24 percent. RNs earn 30 nursing contact hours by completing the Gero Nurse Prep program and those that complete the self-paced program have a 96% pass rate on the ANCC exam should they chose to take the exam.
