Healthcare Administration Certificate

Program Overview

According to the Bureau Labor Statistics, employment of medical and health services managers is projected to grow 17 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services.

Professional careers in healthcare include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Nurse Managers
  • Hospital Administrators
  • Medical Office Managers
