OSDH Announces Statewide, Required Long-Term Care Administrator Training
Prior to taking the state examination
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma State Department of Health’s (OSDH) Long-Term Care (LTC) Administrator Licensing Program has updated the LTC administrator state standards exam to reflect the current requirements in Oklahoma statute.
The test revision occurred after the Oklahoma State Board of Examiners for Long-Term Care Administrators (OSBELTCA) was transitioned to be within the OSDH effective Nov. 1, 2023, required by HB2824.
Roles include providing assistance with initial licensure, oversight of training, licensure/certification renewal and approval of continuing education for licensure.
“We are here to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of some of our most vulnerable Oklahomans,” said Quality Assurance and Regulatory Deputy Commissioner Dr. LaTrina Frazier. “We have to do our due diligence when executing our responsibilities that Oklahomans are trusting us to do.”
The 2024 training will be held from March 4 – 15, 2024 at the Taenbaum Aerospace and Cybersecurity Center on the Rose State College campus.
“Taking over these processes and duties from OSBELTCA was no small feat,” said Dr. Frazier. “I am proud of my team for rising up to the challenge and quickly getting our LTC administrators in the state the information and tools they need and expect to work to obtain their licensure.”
State standard testing is available on the fourth Wednesday of alternating months beginning Feb. 28, 2024.
Dates included are April 24, June 26, Aug. 28, Oct. 23 and Dec. 18.
Testing applicants must meet all requirements and must have applied two weeks prior to test dates.
If administrators have questions, they should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 405.426.8970.
