You can take a lower division certificate program to get into a career in health care administration in about a year or choose to add it to a bachelor of science in health administration (BSHA) now or in the future. Each of these programs helps prepare you to sit for a certification exam through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).
Each of these upper division certificate programs may be taken on their own or en-route to a BSHA.
