​Becoming a Provider

Thank you for your interest in the Long Term Care Community Nursing Program. The intent of this program is to help caregivers and case managers develop the supports needed to help a person with chronic health care needs live in their own home or a foster home. Registered Nurses in this program provide:
  • A nursing evaluation, medication review and service plan for the person,
  • Health education for the person, care providers and/or family members,
  • Teaching for family members to perform tasks of nursing for the person,
  • Teaching and RN delegation of nursing care tasks provided by a non-family or paid care provider,
  • Technical assistance and visitation summaries to the case manager regarding the person's healthcare needs and
  • If authorized by the case manager care coordination with the persons medical and ancillary health providers.
Delegation is a critical aspect of this service. Experience providing nursing delegation or a pass score on the Department’s nursing delegation self-study test is required to meet the qualifications of this program. You can check your knowledge of this function by completing this test.
