I chose to pursue my masters in health administration because I remained in a position where I seemed like I couldn'' t truly continue my profession path without taking that next action in my education. For a very long time I had been pondering going back to school to more develop my qualifications in administrative work within healthcare. I was searching for requirements in an MHA program that might work into my professional schedule and personal schedule. I was trying to find a program that had a great credibility and a degree from a school that was well recognized so Penn State had all the requirements I was trying to find so it was actually a simple decision. What Penn State does very nicely in World Campus is get you incorporated into that online environment. I believe they do an excellent job at getting you comfy with the tools that you'' re going to use your communication approaches. One of the things that we talk with the students about as we interview them as what'' s the structure of the curriculum and the sequence of the curriculum. There are 16 courses total in the curriculum throughout 28 months usually 2 classes a semester often three and by the end the students do a capstone experience that incorporates everything around an issue. The online program is knit together with the residential MHA program that'' s been at Penn State for 25 years and is certified by CAHME, the Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education. That credential matters in our field gives it a prestige and a trustworthiness that doesn'' t originated from other institutions. Certainly I needed to make changes in my schedule in order to handle the duties of being an online college student. An online program permits you the versatility to keep your full-time task and your individual life and still accomplish the goal of getting a degree. After graduation the next actions are truly how can I make this apply and how can I truly do something fantastic for the patients that we deal with every day so for me that'' s that ' s what it ' s been for me is how can I equate all of this into a better client experience.
