Administrators of Nursing and Personal Care Homes: Education and Training; United States - June - August 1969.
National Center for Health Statistics (DHEW/PHS), Hyattsville, MD.
This report, the first of a series based on the findings of Resident Places Survey-3, describes the education and training of nursing and personal care home administrators on the basis of information obtained by questionnaire from the administrators. The data on education and training are given by characteristics of administrators (age, employment status, length of employment as an administrator, and services performed). Survey results show that the median number of years of education for the estimated 18,390 nursing and personal care home administrators in the conterminous United States, June-August 1969, was 13.1 years; nearly 80% had completed at least 12th grade, with 51% having 1 year or more of junior college, nursing school, or college. Twenty-eight percent of the administrators held one or both associate's and bachelor's degrees; the master's and/or doctor's degree was held by 4%. A course in nursing home administration had been taken by 35% of the administrators, the modal number of courses taken being one. Other than formal training, 39% had received on-the-job training, and 23% had received other training or education in nursing home administration. Numerous tables provide the survey data, and nine figures illustrate the data. The three appendixes to the report are: I. Technical Notes on Methods; II. Definitions of Certain Terms Used in This Report; and III. Resident Places Survey-3: Forms and Questionnaires (Facility Questionnaire, Administrator Questionnaire, Staff Information and Control Record, Staff Questionnaire, List of Selected Job Categories, Current Patient Questionnaire).
