Health care is a team effort. It requires effective collaboration between health care providers, third party organizations and patients, to ensure their health care needs are attended to effectively and with minimal disruption. Our Health Care Coordination graduates are prepared to work with an interdisciplinary team to utilize resources, provide health education and be an advocate for the patient when they need it the most. By learning to assess the complex needs of patients and utilizing all the assets that providers have to offer, you will ensure the best care is delivered to patients effectively and efficiently.
The BS program in health care coordination prepares students to effectively coordinate resources to optimize individual health outcomes.
Through coursework, students build a thorough understanding of health care systems, community and public health, community resources, health education and health advocacy.
The program emphasizes patient advocacy and education, the resources available from community and public health services, and the role of health policy and financing in modern health care.
Graduates of the program are prepared to work with an interdisciplinary team to utilize resources, provide health education and advocate for the patient when it is needed the most.
This degree program uses the same prerequisites as the nursing major; therefore, students may transition seamlessly to this program and obtain a bachelor's degree in a health-related field.
