Change Ain't Easy.


“I was SO frustrated, when I began driving change in my organization. I almost gave up! I made so many mistakes and had so many failures.

The game changed, though, when I shifted my leadership mindset.

Based on 20 years of experience, this course gives you everything I wish I’d known when I got started!”

– Jill Vitale-Aussem

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the self-study course experience like?

    You can watch video lessons through your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. You will create your own learning schedule, although we highly recommend that you take 1 to 2 weeks to complete a single chapter. Since the course content builds on itself, this will make the course feel more cohesive and your overall course experience more impactful.

  • Will I be able to pause the video in the middle of a lesson?

    Absolutely. This makes it possible for you to make notes, as you wish, and absorb the concepts shared at your own pace.

  • May I share my login credentials with other colleagues in my organization?

    No. Course registration is per individual. Sharing your login privileges with individuals who have not paid for the course is considered a copyright violation. Individuals who are not appropriately registered for the course are also not eligible for a Certificate of Completion or CEUs. We track each student's learning journey, so that we may better support your learning goals. On a shared account, it would be hard for an individual to keep track of their progress through the course. The system is designed to track student progress and resume course content where they left off. As such, it's impossible for the experience to be replicated for more than one individual.

  • What is your refund policy?

    Our goal is to make sure that you have the best learning experience possible. If Evolve Online Learning isn’t for you, then email us within 10 days of the date of your purchase, and we’ll offer a full refund for your course. Courses that are more than 50% complete are exempt from the refund policy. Send refund requests to theedenalternative@edenalt.org.

  • Are CEUs available for this course?

    Yes. This course is pre-approved for 1.25 continuing education hours available through the National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB).

  • Who do I contact, if I have questions along the way?
