Through traditional and nontraditional delivery methods, students prepare to work across the healthcare continuum by acquiring the management, knowledge, and skills needed in this dynamic and growing industry.

As the average life expectancy continues to increase, it is estimated that by 2050 one in eight Americans will be 75 years of age or older.

Our country needs competent individuals to work in the healthcare setting and, ultimately, individuals to manage that setting.
