September 14, 2020 will kick-off HOPE’s next HFA-RCA course. Since there will only be one course in 2020 interested individuals will want to register early before the course fills.

Students successfully completing the course will meet the educational requirements for licensure as a Health Facility or Residential Care Facility Administrator.The RCA and HFA courses are combined for three weeks.
These three weeks cover the material both RCAs and HFAs need: aging processes, accounting, budget, management theory, legal issues, etc. At the end of the three weeks, the RCA course is complete. The HFA course continues for three more weeks during which nursing home regulations, reimbursement methods, etc. are covered.
Faculty for the course includes Rebecca Bartle, MSN, RN, HFA, Terry Miller, HFA and other carefully selected seasoned, long term care professionals.
The tuition for the full six week HFA course is $3,500. The RCA portion of the course, which runs for the first three weeks, is $2,500. The fee includes the days of instruction, course materials, study guides and text books. In order to guarantee a place in the 2020 fall course, registrants must send a $1000, non-refundable deposit with their application. This deposit will be applied towards full payment of the course. The balance is due by August 16, 2020.
