Phase 3 NAB & NHAP Exam!

Nursing Home Administrator AIT’s! Are you prepared for Phase 3 on NHAP and NAB exams?

How is Phase 3 different than Phase 1 and 2?

The changes to the Federal regulations have been so extensive since 2017 that CMS had to divide the implementation process into 3 Phases. The first two phases were the reorganization of content, revision or bettering of already existing regulations, adding new requirements to already existing laws, adding completely new regulations and changing all of the Ftag numbers. Phase 1 was completed November 2017 and Phase 2 in 2018. In Phase 1 and 2 SNF’s have been in the process of implementing the required tools/ P & P’s for data collecting (QAPI), training, emergency, infection control, trauma informed care, compliance & ethics in order to be ready for Phase 3 or “game day” Effective November 28th, 2019. Phase 3 is the final stage when all of the parts are put together to make the machine.

What does it mean to be ready for Phase 3?

The old mentality of document, document, document is gone. In fact, so much so that the new LTCSP is very clear that the priority in the new  survey process is observation, interviews, complaints and lastly, record review to support or contradict the surveyors findings during observation, interviews, complaints, etc. All the papers, binders, forms, Policy and Procedures won’t help if contradictions are found during observations, interviews, complaints, etc. In fact, if the documentation contradicts their findings during interviews, observation, complaints, etc., the facility will be affected negatively.

How does Phase 3 affect AIT’s?

Its the difference between passing or failing!

Often times AIT’s feel the exams are trying to trick them. This is not the case. They are simply testing you on pertinent topics that you need to know as an Administrator and potential scenarios that may come up on daily, weekly or monthly basis. They want you to be prepared to be the best Administrator that you can be. The Exams are a way to ensure a certain level of knowledge prior to running a facility. As the Administrator, you are the leader and with that comes a huge amount of responsibility. It’s a very important position. AIT’s must be prepared to be tested on Phase 3.

Licensed Nursing Home Administrators! Yes you can take the same NHA CEU course twice.

Our CE courses are as pertinent tomorrow as they are today. Continuing Education is about learning, refreshing, motivating and inspiring us. Yes, you have to pass with a certain score in order to obtain your certificate. That said, the focus isn’t your score so much but rather that you learn something new or are reminded of something that you know but have forgotten. It’s about us continuing our own learning. As Administrator’s, we take care of everyone else. We organize staff learning in groups or individual sessions daily but sometimes, we forget about our own growth. The continuing education requirement makes us take the time to learn and grow.

Licensed Nursing Home Administrators! How can I take the same NHA CE course twice?

You could take a course today during your current license renewal period and take the same course during your next license renewal period. Course approval numbers are renewed periodically but that isn’t a concern for you but rather for us as your CE Provider. You just have to make sure that you don’t take the same course twice within the same renewal period consequently, counting it twice. When you take the course for your current license renewal period, your certificate should reflect a date prior to your current license expiration. When you take it the next time, it needs to be dated after this current license expiration date as to place it during your next license renewal period. Sometimes the course will have the same course approval number or a different one. As your CE Provider, we make sure our courses are current. You can count a course only one time during one license renewal period.

As a CE provider, we take pride in creating courses that you will enjoy on a personal and professional level. Our objective is to make the process interesting for you while also learning in the most efficient manner. We don’t want to bore you to death! We also choose topics that have longevity. In other words, they have ongoing benefits to you. They are a good learning today and tomorrow.
