Length of Training
Healthcare service administration requires a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration, business administration, health policy and administration, or a related field such as accounting or human resources. Larger organizations require a Master’s degree in healthcare, hospital administration, or business administration. Course work includes financial management, policy development, administrative theory, organizational dynamics, and business principles.

Licensure/Certification

Requirements for licensure or certification depend on the field in which the administrator chooses to work. Many organizations offer certification programs that allow professionals to demonstrate skills beyond their formal education. Some states require special licenses or examinations prior to service. All states require a series of courses and internships before a license is granted to a nursing home administrator.
