Take your leadership and management talents to the next level with a preparatory workshop for AADNS’s Director of Nursing Services-Certified (DNS-CT) certification. Earning this credential validates your expertise, gives you the advantage among your peers, and helps you improve quality, communication, and resident care throughout the facility.

Meet the challenges of long-term care as they arise with strategies to excel during surveys using tested best-practices. Apply a team approach to quality improvement that honors resident preferences and leverages staff skills.
