AALTCN is attempting to help employers and nursing staff ensure appropriate role performance through the development of core competencies for major nursing roles.
AALTCN provides educational programs and certification for LTC DONs, staff development specialists, LPNs, RNs, and culture change nurse coordinators, all accredited nationwide via the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
Moreover, recognizing that costs and replacement coverage for staff to attend live workshops and conferences preclude some nursing staff from attending educational programs, AALTCN will be rolling out online education soon.
By representing and serving all members of the nursing department rather than a single category of worker, AALTCN supports this movement.
While recognizing unique differences among various levels of workers and lines of authority, AALTCN fosters staff unity.
AALTCN is committed to casting a more realistic and positive view of LTC nursing than what currently exists.
