Nursing homes throughout the nation must employ a Director of Nursing (DON) as a part of Federal and State regulations. When a new DON is hired, particularly one with little to no experience as a DON, the tasks of the position may be difficult to teach with the short time (if any) that DONs are given in orientation. This may be particularly burdensome when combining the day-to-day duties and problem-solving strategies that encompass the DON position.

LeadingAge Iowa is pleased to present an Intro to DON Virtual Seminar for newly hired DONs or those with experience that would like a refresher. Topics will include an introduction to the regulatory guidelines surrounding the DON; an overview of administrative responsibilities such as the quality measures, CMS 5-star reports, PBJ reporting; insurances including Medicare, HMOs, and Medicaid; the survey process and the DON’s responsibilities; human services and much, much more! Be sure to watch our educational topics as we plan for a Regulatory Seminar later in 2022, in addition to this Intro seminar.

In addition to planned discussions, opportunities will be provided to network among others in the seminar and the ability to ask any questions during our live virtual training.

The Intro to DON Virtual Seminar is held from 1–4:15 p.m. for three afternoons. The Seminar will be held 100% virtually to allow the DON the ability to remain in the building throughout the day, as this is often crucial. The Intro to DON Virtual Seminar will also be recorded and available to participants on-demand until the end of February for those who may need to step away for a short time.

Who Should Attend
Directors of nursing, assistant directors of nursing, unit managers, charge nurses, and other nurse leaders. Appropriate for SNF and NF organizations.
