More options for Long Term Care students

Southeast Community College and Youngstown State University are joining forces. The two schools signed an articulation agreement so that students in SCC’s Long Term Care Administration program can further their education at YSU.

“Both programs are offered online, so students can continue their education through Youngstown State University,” said Theresa Parker, SCC’s program director. “This puts a student in a better position to meet their state nursing home administrator licensing board requirements.”

Students would earn their Associate of Applied Science degree at SCC and then complete their Bachelor of Science in Applied Science degree with a major in Long Term Care at Youngstown State University. Courses range from nutrition and nursing to accounting and environmental regulations. Students will be prepared to handle a variety of challenges in the LTCA field.

“The field of gerontology is growing due to the increased longevity and the retirement of the Baby Boomer generation,” said Dr. Daniel Van Dussen, professor of gerontology at Youngstown. “This creates more opportunities to work with older adults.”
