NAPNES Nursing Certifications

NAPNES Allied Health Professional Long-Term Care Certification


The NAPNES Allied Health Professional (AHP) Long-Term Care (LTC) Certification is a comprehensive program covering the entire lifespan of individuals considered elderly and/or chronically ill. The program is a new certification for NAPNES and includes unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) for the AHP LTC. The AHP LTC is comprehensive and includes all age groups with chronic illness because while the certification program and exam cover nursing care in geriatrics, the content also has broader appeal for excellence in nursing care for all age groups with chronic illnesses. AHP LTC designation confirms to employers that the candidate is knowledgeable in long-term care and is engaged in skill-building.


The AHP LTC courseware sometimes reviews and other times introduces participants to the concepts, skills, and techniques associated with geriatric and long-term care (LTC) nursing. The curriculum includes theory related to nursing care provided to geriatric patients, and providing a safe, clean and comfortable environment for the long term care, chronically ill patient. The certification program includes a review of anatomy and physiology, and therapeutic/modified diets for various body systems.


NAPNES Approved for 35 CE Hours.
