The 60-hour Health Care Administration associate degree program can be completed in less than two years, even without any prior coursework.
A healthcare administration degree at CCU provides a solid introduction toward becoming a frontline leader in health care. All healthcare administrator courses are taught with a Christian worldview, so you gain unique underpinnings in this degree: you'll grasp the importance of ethical considerations while understanding crucial aspects of leading others as a servant leader.
In the associate degree in healthcare administration program, you'll be introduced to health care terminology, delivery systems, and informatics – which will enable you to make the best possible decisions regarding patient outcomes. Additionally, the program provides a background in human resources – because health care, at its core, is about dealing with other people. You'll combine all of this with an examination of spirituality and ethics in health care – and you'll understand that work in health care is, indeed, a sacred calling.
Classes are typically completed in 5-week blocks.
