Ask your Senator to vote NO on HB 1551 - we need educated long-term care administrators.

HB 1551 would exempt many individuals looking to become long-term care administrators from the requirement that they complete a four-year degree.  Since adding this into law many years ago, Oklahoma has made significant progress in reducing deficiencies in our state's long-term care facilities.  

Ask your Senator to reject HB 1551, and to keep these strong educational requirements in place.  Help us protect our state's most frail and vulnerable citizens. 



Dear [Decision Maker],

For 15 years in Oklahoma, there has been a requirement for a four-year degree for our long-term care administrators, those in charge of caring for our most frail and vulnerable citizens.

During that time Oklahoma has gone from the top ten worst states in the country for nursing home deficiencies to 27th and we now rank below the national average in deficiencies. Please don't undo that progress by voting for HB 1551.

Let's protect the progress we've made in long-term care. As your constituent, I request you vote NO on the Senate amendment and on HB 1551. Thank you.
