Nurse Certificate - MDS Nurse

Price: $129.00
MDS Nurse Coordinator Certificate (Certificate plus 60 contact hours; $129)

Several years ago the Federal government established the minimum data that long term care facilities must provide nationally for each resident. Initially the MDS was used for quality control. Today the Federal government has tied the reimbursement to each facility for each patient to the MDS. Today’s long term care facilities live and die based on how well the MDS coordinator nurse does! Accordingly, the MDS nurse receives extra pay and has become a keystone position in the long term care scene.

There are two major components to this certificate program: learning the MDS itself, and learning the larger context in which the MDS functions: the Federal rules and regulations that govern the day to day life of each Medicare and or Medicaid certified long term care facility.
