Health Care Administration (HCA) & Undergraduate Certificate in Long Term Care Administration (LTCA)
The Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration (HCA) and the undergraduate certificate in Long Term Care Administration (LTCA) work together to prepare you for high demand positions in the health care industry.
As a student in the HCA program, you will take practical courses designed for immediate on-the-job application, such as:
- Health Care Finance
- Health Care Quality
- Health Organizations and Management
The LTCA certificate provides graduates with an additional area of expertise in dealing with the aging population, and qualifies you to sit for the Licensed Nursing Home Administrator board exam.
WKU's online HCA program is one of only 11 in the U.S. and the only one in the state of Kentucky to receive accreditation by the National Association of Long Term Care Administrators Boards.
