The best LPN training program ever. I will highly recommend this program to nurses in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, Home Care, and all acute care nurses looking to transition from hospital to post-acute care.
Angela K., LPN, PAC-LPN
My name is Janet, and I am a proud PAC-DON. I was promoted from a Unit Manager to a DON position. I was excited at first but also completely lost. Taking this in-depth DON course has fully prepared me to take on the challenges as a DON. I am so happy I found out about this course on social media.
Janet M. MSN, RN, PAC-DON
I really enjoyed taking this course. and feel I now have a better understanding of what nurse executives do and will leverage that for current and future career goals.
Barbara S., RN, PAC-NE
This class was a wonderful class. It is a great class for a new executive nurse or a leader ready to take the next step in their career. The class size was small which gave us opportunities to ask questions and collaborate. It covered all the major important categories of being a nurse executive. The instructor was clear, friendly, interactive, and kept us engaged the entire three days.
Jennifer M., BSN, RN, RAC-CT, PAC-NE
The PAC-NE course is beneficial to any nurse leader looking to take their career to the next level. The course contains information that all nurse leaders should know and understand before leading others. Cindi has a way of teaching the class and explaining concepts in a way that is easy for everyone to understand.
Demetrius K., MBA, MSN, RN, LNHA, PAC-NE
As an executive in the post acute and senior care world, I am impressed with this organization that will fill an immediate need for postacute professionals to expand their horizons and have a network of like-minded clinicians. I urge your involvement and participation.
