Since there is a great need for effective health care administrators in institutions such as doctor’s offices, governmental agencies, hospitals and the like, an associate’s degree in Health Care Administration might be right for you.

Administrative roles may differ within health care institutions, but the necessity for health care administrators is so great that you will be almost assured of a career as a health care administrator. Health care administrators must be detail-oriented and be able to set objectives and goals for their department and staff. They must evaluate the progress of personnel and be adept at handling budgets and medical reports. Health care administrators can be employed by doctors to be a supervisor within their offices.

To obtain your associate’s degree in health care administration, there are several different kinds of online programs. Choosing an accredited program is key, because you can also go on to advanced degrees and be able to transfer your associate’s degree credits.

Administrators within the health care industry often start their careers by working within other health care specialties, such as laboratory assisting or nursing. If you are interested in something more advanced and you have the drive and initiative, a health care administration degree may advance your ideals and goals.

Whether you are placed within a hospital, an insurance company or a doctor’s office, you will definitely need more courses in management in order to continue to advance within the health care field. For example, many nurses may become nursing administrators after receiving management training. Curricula that integrates hands-on learning with classroom material is the best way to succeed in this area.

Courses you should be looking for in an effective online health administration program include:

  • Health care information technology
  • Finance
  • Accounting
  • Management of Human Resources
  • Health care law

All administrators are required to pass exams that give them licenses within their respective state. Federal law mandates that the health care administrator be state licensed.
