Health Care Management (EC)
Major: Health Care Management
Health Care Management program addresses supervisory skills essential to fields of management and administration throughout the acute, community and long term systems of care. These skills are integrated with concepts and themes from a variety of disciplines working collaboratively to understand, make decisions, and direct change within the health care setting. Opportunities to enhance personal growth and promote professional development are encouraged to help build the foundation for continued growth.
The Health Care Management Bachelor’s Degree program is a State of Wisconsin approved “regular course of study,” qualifying the graduate to take the Nursing Home Administrator examination. Students graduating with the Bachelors Degree in Health Care Management in states other than Wisconsin may be required to take additional classes and/or participate in an externship in order to qualify for the examination.

- Create a reflective self-plan for personal and professional growth;
