New program addresses the need to fulfill the demand for healthcare professionals.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 24, 2014
Florida National University (FNU) has added its second graduate program to help students interested in obtaining administrative and managerial roles in the healthcare industry. In an effort to acknowledge the expansion of the healthcare industry, as well as enhancing the repertoire of its graduate programs, the Master of Science in Health Services Administration (HSA) will equip students with the tools they need to navigate this intensive field.
“Florida National University, in its effort to meet the educational needs of the students and our community, is offering this Master in Health Service Administration, which is in line with the mission of our Allied Health Division as well as our institution,” said Dr. Caridad Hernandez, Vice President of Academic Affairs
Comprised of 36 credits, this brick and mortar program covers areas such as the fundamentals of the U.S. health care system, management of health care organizations, statistics in health care management, planning and marketing, and more. Prospective students who are currently in an executive role or are looking to take their career to the next level will greatly benefit from this area of study.
“By completing this program, graduates’ qualifications will be enhanced and maximized to the point that it may improve their chances of getting a promotion, or increase the opportunity of finding employment in the health care field,” said Dr. Loreto Almonte, Allied Health Division Head.
The fact that the healthcare sector is adding jobs at a rapid speed, the inauguration of this program couldn’t come at a better time. Since this industry’s contribution to economic growth is apparent, FNU has added this program to help its students feel secure about their choice of study at the graduate level. Being that FNU already specializes in healthcare degrees at the associate and bachelors level, the university wanted to create a straightforward track for continuing education.
