Due to the growing concerns presented by COVID-19 (the coronavirus) and out of an abundance of caution for nursing facility staff, Mass Senior Care Association is postponing educational programs scheduled in March 2020.  We are attempting to reschedule for a later date and will keep all registrants updated once we have a new date.

Nursing facilities provide quality, sophisticated medical care to diverse populations including rehab and sub-acute patients, long term care residents and those requiring specialty care.  At the core of this care is the Director of Nursing Services (DNS), a job that requires dynamic leadership skills and the ability to motivate others to achieve exceptional results. The DNS must also be familiar with the latest changes in clinical care delivery and regulations and be able to manage a multi-disciplinary team model that delivers the highest quality of care to the individuals they serve.  

The Massachusetts Senior Care Association offers a 6-week workshop that provides an opportunity to learn new skills, fine-tune existing knowledge, explore values-based leadership, and operationalize the skills and competencies that are needed to be a nurse leader in the long term care and sub-acute settings.  

This program is geared for nurses who may be transitioning into the role of Director of Nursing in the long term care or sub-acute setting and for those practicing nurses considering future career development.
