How to Select a MDS Coordinator School
An MDS (minimum data set) coordinator interacts with admin and medical staff to ensure that patients' records meet government regulations. MDS coordinators are certified by the American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordinators (AANAC) through a 10-course online program. Most MDS coordinators are either licensed vocational nurses (LVN) or registered nurses (RN).
Consider the following when looking for MDS coordinator schools:
- When choosing a nursing degree program for an LVN, RN or BSN program, a prospective student can consider the opportunities to gain hands-on clinical experience.
- Nursing students looking to become MDS coordinators generally look for accredited programs to be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
- Typically, universities and colleges with long-established nursing degree programs have the strongest teachers and instructors.
