In an age where the fast acquisition of knowledge and skills is critical, you must be able to train an administrator-in-training (AIT) or mentor quickly and well without decreasing your own or your staff’s productivity. This program will offer nursing home administrators information to assist them as preceptors for AITs and/or mentors. The topics to be covered include culture change, state statutes and regulations, communication, generational styles, learning styles, principles of adult education, leadership, and team building. Participants completing this training program will be able to:
1. Identify the regulatory requirements of a preceptor.
2. Support the development of an individualized curriculum for an AIT/ mentor and preceptor, including culture change and quality.
3. Identify topics to be covered with an AIT/mentor.
4. Describe teaching methods that can be utilized with an AIT/ mentor. 5. Implement a training program for the AIT/mentor. 6. Evaluate the completed training program for the AIT/mentor and preceptor.
