David Farrell, MSW, LNHA, is a licensed nursing home administrator who has spent his entire career in the long-term care profession. He started as a certified nursing assistant in order to earn extra money while attending college. That experience inspired him to pursue a master’s degree in social work with a concentration in gerontology and administration from Boston College. In the 27 years he has served as a nursing home administrator and regional director of operations, David has advocated for patient-centered care using quality improvement practices. A published author and former member of the board of directors at the Pioneer Network, he is the author of an award-winning book, Meeting the Leadership Challenge in LTC: What You Do Matters! co-authored with Barbara Frank and Cathie Brady.
