Overview

Step up in healthcare

One of the most important things you can do when you work as a healthcare administrator is make sure the facility you manage is well taken care of. Not only is it in the best interest of your patients, it’s in the best interest of your staff as well. This bachelor’s degree program teaches the supervisory skills you need for proper management and administration in any system of care – be it acute, community, or long-term. This State of Wisconsin-approved “regular course of study” will qualify you to take the Nursing Home Administrator examination.

In the Healthcare Management program of Concordia University Wisconsin, we hold the following to be an unequivocal truth: we’re all created by God. When you’re an individual undergoing treatment in a healthcare facility – whether it’s acute, community, or long-term – it means you should be treated with utmost care and dignity. That’s your role as a healthcare administrator. To help uphold the dignity of each of your patients. It will also teach you how to be an effective healthcare administrator, how to evaluate research results applicable to a healthcare practice, and how to demonstrate effective communication – in writing and presentations.
