An Administrator-in-Training (AIT) Program is a supervised internship during which the AIT works under the guidance and supervision of a preceptor, who is a licensed administrator meeting the qualifications established by the Pennsylvania State Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators. The purpose of an AIT Program is to enhance the professional development of the AIT in the field of long-term care administration. The experience equips the AIT with the tools and knowledge needed for a profession as an administrator. 

The next opportunity to apply for an AIT grant will be summer 2025.
