The Bachelor of Science in Long-Term Care Management (LTCM), the first-of-its-kind in the nation, will begin in Fall 2018. The new degree, offered online and the classroom, will prepare graduates to assist patients and families to connect with community resources, transition from hospital to home, and manage the care of residents in an institutional setting.

As a four year interdisciplinary degree, students will take courses from a variety of disciplines – nursing, caregiving, psychology, sociology, and business. They will become knowledgeable in palliative care, hospice, gerontology, family issues, caregiving support, counseling, health promotion, business management, health funding, and cultural competency. Graduates of the program will be fully equipped to help patients and their families better navigate today’s complicated health care system.

A better prepared workforce is needed to care for our nation’s aging and disabled populations. Employers have expressed the need for a new skill set and are looking for individuals who are compassionate, culturally sensitive, able to communicate well with others and have managerial skills. Organizations in the region looking to employ GSW graduates with this degree include hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, Area Agencies on Aging, home health care agencies, state department of aging services, and more.
