NHA without AIT
If you want to become licensed as a nursing home administrator, almost all states require that you have a bachelor's degree and complete an administrator in training program, which is a 6 to 12 month preceptorship with an experienced administrator, all before you are allowed to take the state and national boards. There are two states that do not require an AIT for licensure, just a bachelor's degree OR licensure as a RN: Illinois and Michigan. A third state, Missouri, has relatively lax standards for licensure but they reserve the right to require an AIT if they think it is necessary.
