New research conducted by AHCA/NCAL shows that SNFs that employ at least one American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Board certified RN also, on average, performed higher on SNF VBP performance. The net result is that these SNFs get higher Medicare Part A reimbursements.
Gero Nurse Prep dramatically increases gerontological nurse competency scores and positions 96% of RNs to pass the ANCC Board certification exam the first time.

Amanda Garcia’s eight-year career as an assisted living RN at The Kensington in Fort Madison, Iowa is filled with accomplishments. She was the first in her county to become a facilitator and instructor for end-of-life care. She has trained staff at the local hospital and Iowa State Penitentiary in dementia care. She also received the Distinguished Director of Nursing in Leadership Award from the Iowa Center for Assisted Living, and, The Kensington received the Silver – Achievement in Quality Award through the AHCA/NCAL Quality Award Program.
In between all that, Garcia studied for and passed the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) board certification exam in gerontological nursing – the gold standard in demonstrating knowledge and expertise in gerontological nursing. She credits the AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep on-line training course in preparing her to pass the exam.
“The course is amazing and prepares you very well to take the exam,” Garcia said. “It was a real confidence booster that I do know what I’m talking about.” She said that the Gero Nurse Prep course was more intensive than she expected. “There is so much that is different and more to learn with the geriatric population.” The Gero Nurse Prep case studies pushed the envelope in using her critical thinking skills, she explained.
