I found the real life experiences and comparisons and citing and explaining regulations helpful. I will never discard my course notes and regulatory references.

Thank you for this course. I successfully passed my exam and have received my card. Not sure what my score was but will reach out to them to see if I can get that information. Thank you again, I couldn't have been successful without this course.

-- S.T.

I benefited from the reiterating of important information. I have taken this course previously in person through a different instructor and did not learn a fraction of what I learned with this program!! Thank you for the concise teaching!!!

-- R.C.

I was very impressed with how well this course was put together. I learned that I am ready to sit for the exam and move forward with my goal of becoming an Executive Director.  The elderly are my passion and my calling!

-- K.M.

I enjoyed the course. I learned so much. I will apply this knowledge to my everyday nursing practice, especially state surveys.

-- Y.M.

I liked the small tests along the way. I like all the presenters and the best practices. I learned what I need to further review and study to get my certification.

-- D.C.

Monica's instruction portions were wonderful. Very easy to stay focused and engaged. I learned more about the continued residency which I am currently fighting for one of our residents so we can keep them at the community. I am using the regulation we discussed and it is being run up the chain of command.

-- L.P.

The pop-up quizzes along the way of certain sections was extremely helpful in keeping me engaged. Great online training. I learned a lot more on the Administrator side which was my goal.  I have been in sales for the past 5 years this will help my transition back into operations.

-- A.G.

Dear Ms. Wilson,

A few lines to thank you for teaching and making this course a reality. It was so nice to see you each day via the Internet, and learn the proper way to manage an ALF.

There were days that I wondered why did I get into this class...then you, or any of your guests came in, and I no longer had doubts. I wanted to become a part of those administrators that guard with care and compassion the final years of the vulnerable population. 

I look forward to a day when I can personally thank you for helping me reach this goal. Please take care and be safe. May the good Lord bless you.

-- C.G.
