NICHE member organizations gain access to resources and tools to implement the NICHE program and achieve – and sustain – better care and outcomes for older adults. At the beginning of their journey, nurse leaders in member organizations participate in a year-long, mentored clinical quality improvement project through which they learn about and begin to implement the NICHE practice model. 

NICHE helps long-term and post-acute care organizations exceed Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) quality standards. We offer education and resources to help your team succeed with the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM), Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI), the Five-Star Quality Rating System, Phase 3 Implementation of Federal Regulations, and more.

NICHE membership is only available to facilities that provide care.
