The Administrator in Training (AIT) program has been a staple in the long-term care industry for decades. It has been a vital tool for training the next generation of administrators. However, with the changing times, it has become apparent that a rebranding of the program is necessary to stay relevant and align with other organizations. With that goal in mind, the NAB is rebranding the AIT to Administrator Residency.

The Need for Change

The long-term care industry is constantly evolving, and it is vital that organizations adapt to these changes. One of the significant changes that have occurred in recent years is the shift towards residency programs. Residency programs are becoming the norm in healthcare, and long-term care facilities need to follow suit. By rebranding the AIT program to Administrator Residency, we align ourselves with other organizations and demonstrate that we are committed to providing the best possible training for our future leaders.

Benefits of Administrator Residency

Rebranding the AIT program to Administrator Residency has several benefits. Firstly, it will attract more candidates to the program. The term residency has a more prestigious connotation and will make the program more appealing to potential candidates. Secondly, it will provide a clear understanding of what the program entails. The term residency implies a more hands-on approach to training, which is what the AIT program is all about. Lastly, it will give the program more credibility. By aligning ourselves with other organizations, we demonstrate that we are committed to providing the best possible training to our future leaders.
