Program Overview

This online program provides you with a professional education in the field of long-term care administration and one with an important distinction.

While many other colleges and universities offer long-term care administration as a specialization or subset of another program such as business administration, health administration or gerontology, Saint Joseph's offers one of the few degrees in long-term care administration itself. This degree program is one of the few in the country accredited by the  National Association of Boards of Examiners of Long-Term Care Administrators (NAB), and the only NAB-accredited program available online.

    School Overview

    Saint Joseph’s College is a Roman Catholic liberal arts college for men and women of all faiths and ages. The 474-acre campus, on the shore of Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine, is in view of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range of the White Mountains. Saint Joseph’s was founded by the Portland Regional Community of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas in 1912 and chartered by the Maine Legislature in 1915. Today, it is Maine’s only Catholic college. From 1912 to 1956, the College was located on the grounds of the Sisters of Mercy Motherhouse in the Deering district of Portland. In 1949, the name of the College was changed from Saint Joseph’s to The College of Our Lady of Mercy, but with the change of site to Standish in 1956, the original name of Saint Joseph’s was reinstated. In 1970, Saint Joseph’s became a co-educational institution.

    Offering distance education for learners of all ages since 1976, Saint Joseph’s online programs include certificates, associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees—academic levels that suit your level.
