I did not know what to expect from a 100% online program, but with expert faculty and staff that are devoted to supporting students, my learning experience has exceeded my expectations. Faculty members are readily accessible and actively participate in the learning process, promoting critical thinking. Through the program, I have developed a better understanding of what it takes to be a leader in healthcare and the skills required to excel in such positions.
