All online coursework is based upon on-campus long term care courses taught by Dr. James E. Allen. The topics and activities are essentially the same in both courses. The entire course is completed online. 

Dr. Allen has been teaching similar courses on campus since 1982 as part of the long term care administration concentration within the bachelor's and master's program of the Department of Health Policy and Administration in the School of Public Health here at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The department has been cited as one of the leading two or three departments of health care administration in the nation. Much of the content of the courses comes from Dr. Allen's book which is used by universities throughout the United States.
