Do I Need this Course? What is the national Pass Rate?
The national nursing home administrator exam is prepared and administered by Professional Examination Service, (PES) for the NAB. Their data indicate that between 68% and 70% pass the national exam the first time. About 65% pass the exam on their second attempt. It gets worse from there. Depending on the version of the exam you get, 112 to 115 of the 150 items must be answered correctly to pass.

What one recent student said about these courses in an email:

"Dear Dr. Allen,
Just a brief note to let you know that I purchased your course LTCE 201 and 202 to prepare for my NHA exam in PA. I took about 6 weeks to review the material and took my exam in January. I passed the exam with a score of over 130. The information and organization of the course was invaluable to me in testing so well. Thank you for making this program available. It really helped to reduce the stress of this very important exam. I really felt prepared. The organization and table of contents in the interpretive guidelines I received with the course is a great addition to my library making my job easier each day. Thanks again.
Sincerely,
S. from PA"

Over the last 18 year span during which these courses have been offered, licensure candidates who completed these courses have done well on the national exam.

Should I take the LTCE NAB Exam Prep course or the LTCE 201-202 courses?
LTCE 201-202 and the LTCE NAB Exam Prep courses contain identical course content. LTCE 201-202 are designed for people seeking a Nursing Home Administrator license who will need a certificate of completion at the end of the courses. They include assignments that are graded by Dr. Allen. The LTCE NAB Exam Prep course is designed for people who need a refresher on any or all of the domains and who would like to practice taking quiz questions. If you have already bought LTCE 201-202, there is no need to buy the review class as you already have the content you need to study for your exam.
