The New York Association of Long Term Care Administrators (NYALTCA) was organized in 1968 by a group of nursing home administrators who had taken a course of instruction at Cornell University in preparation for licensure. The organizing group felt a need to continue in fellowship and provide a medium for obtaining continuing education credits for license renewal.
The Association’s primary goal is to develop high-quality, cost-effective programs to meet New York State continuing education requirements. To accomplish this, NYALTCA sponsors five (5) one-day seminars each year. Business meetings are conducted in conjunction with the seminars during the months of March, June, September, and December. Seminar topics are selected based on an annual needs assessment of the membership.
The Association consists of licensed nursing home administrators and certified directors of adult care homes. We currently have approximately 225 members located throughout the state.
