What You Will Learn
The management skills you will learn in this certificate program are applicable across the health care setting. The primary focus in these six courses is the long term care facility setting. The nursing facility is situated mid-way between the hospital setting and ambulatory care settings such as a physicians’ group practice. The nursing facility is complex enough to contain nearly all the departments and functions of a hospital (many nursing facilities have more beds that small hospitals). In addition, the managerial skill sets need in hospital and nursing facility setting can be applied across the health care system.
Through these courses you will learn the basic principles of managing the health care organization. The majority of costs in health care are personnel….perhaps 60% of all health care dollars are spent on staff. The course on human resourced prepares you to manage health care staff. No health care organization can survive without sustainable financing. You will learn the basics of health care organization financing. The fourth course provides background on the rules and regulations of the health care field. The fifth course focuses on resident care ideas which are transferable to any health care setting. The final course, infection control, prepares you in an area faced by every health care provider at every level of care. In today’s world of increasingly antibiotic resistant bugs every health care provider must successfully manage the threat of infections.
Vancomycin-resistant-staphlococcus-aureus (below) can be in any health care setting….not just the hospital.
If you are interested in becoming the administrator of a health care facility, these courses are an excellent stepping stone.
