Please see the following notice from the National Association of Long Term Care Administrators Board:

Attention Exam Candidates and Prospective Examinees: In July 2017, NAB will transition its examinations to a new structure: examinees will need to pass a 100-item “core of knowledge” section and a 50-item line of service section. Please be advised that there will be a brief “blackout” period during this transition, in which no NAB exams will be administered. Examinees and prospective examinees must either plan to take the exam in its current form by June 30, or to prepare to take the new examination form after July 1.Study guides and reference lists will be revised in accordance with the new exam structure some time this spring.

NAB’s examinations test for entry-level knowledge in long term care administration. The Nursing Home Administrator Exam (NHA) has been developed and administered by NAB for decades and is taken by over 2,000 candidates across the nation annually. The Residential Care/ Assisted Living Administrator Exam (RC/AL), has been offered by NAB since 2000; hundreds of candidates sit for this national exam, both from states that require the RC/AL as a condition of licensure and from voluntary candidates who are seeking to enhance their employment opportunities and increase their knowledge base.
