A Health Services Executive is a state-licensed administrator who has achieved leadership competencies for a nursing facility, assisted living community or home and community based provider. The competencies are measured through education, experience and examination. The NAB established the certification program as a forward-looking approach to how long-term care leaders are educated, trained and licensed. Additionally, their aim was to address professional image, inconsistent practice standards, licensure portability and meeting the needs of employers and regulators.
Bethany Retirement Living was founded in Fargo in 1939 and is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Bethany provides high-quality care to the elderly in skilled nursing, memory care, rehabilitation, transitional care, assisted living, basic care, senior apartments, and personal care programs.
