How can I get a job as an AIT? This is an extremely common and/or recurring question. Like anything else in life, you have to think outside of the box. Most companies have Preceptors that work with current employees who want to complete an AIT program. If you are not already in a position as a social worker, DON, Office Manager, Dietician, etc. then you may want to consider being hired in one of those positions so that you too could then have the option of eventually participating in an AIT Program. I’m not saying that you can’t be hired aan AIT from outside of a company, but it’s not a common scenario.
Call your state’s Nursing Home Administrator Program and ask them for a list of preceptors in your state. They may charge you a small fee for the list and how they send it is up the state. When you receive the list go through and highlight the preceptors in your area and call them. Sometimes they need to fill a position which creates a perfect opportunity for you to work in a position while you are completing your AIT Program with your Preceptor.
Of course, when you are ready to prepare and study for your NHA exams, you should call us 818-882-8188
