Requirement and eligibility 

 

  • Education Requirements

 

Many higher-level health care administration executives have a master's degree in a field such as public health or business, hospital or nursing administration. A bachelor's degree is often sufficient for entry-level positions, or for employment with smaller facilities when coupled with relevant health care experience.

 

  • Certification and Licensing

 

Health care administrators who work as nursing home administrators must also pass the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) exam and obtain state licensure. Health care administrators in other sectors are not required to be licensed; however, voluntary certification is available through the American College of Healthcare Administration. 

 

Admission Procedure

For undergraduate study, the generic college application/admission procedure would need-

  • High school transcripts
  • Statement of purpose
  • Financial requirements 
  • Entrance exams like SAT/ACT or other country specific exams
  • English proficiency tests like IELTS/TOEFL (as per where you want to study) 

Although some entry-level jobs in hospital administration require the completion of a bachelor’s degree, the standard requirement for most jobs in hospital administration is a master’s degree in health administration.

Some of the master’s degree options for individuals interested in becoming hospital administrators include:

  • Master of Health Administration (MHA)
  • Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Health Administration
  • Master of Science in Health Administration (MSHA)
  • Master of Public Health (MPH) in Health Administration

These graduate programs prepare students to receive a competency-based education in leadership, management, and negotiation in the healthcare industry. Graduates of master’s degrees in health administration are prepared to integrate marketing, personnel, financial, and operations initiatives in hospital systems and solve real-world challenges by employing modern theories of leadership, management, and negotiation. Graduates of these programs are well poised to create manageable solutions in even the most complex hospital systems.

Master’s degrees in health administration require candidates to possess a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. While some candidates for these programs possess undergrad degrees in health administration or a similar discipline, many possess undergrad degrees in areas like finance, human resources, business management, and accounting.

Many healthcare professionals also seek master’s degree in health administration to propel their careers into more lucrative administrative positions. Therefore, it is commonplace for students of master’s degree programs in health administration to possess everything from an RN to an MD.

Other admission requirements for master’s degree in health administration include:

  • Minimum undergraduate GPA requirements
  • Minimum GRE scores
  • Admission essay/interview
