As the healthcare industry continues to undergo major changes in
structure and financing, skilled health services administrators
will be needed to improve, direct and coordinate cost-effective and
quality healthcare delivery systems. They will be expected to
integrate in-depth knowledge of the complex regulatory environment
with organizational management and technology expertise.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment for
health and human services administrators will rise by 16% by 2018.
Demand will be strongest in hospitals, private medical offices and
healthcare management companies.
You can prepare for these opportunities through the new,
126-credit Bachelor of Science in Health and Human Services at St.
John’s University. Offered by the College of
Professional Studies, the program is designed to provide
students with the necessary skills and knowledge to assume
entry-level managerial positions in the industry.
Committed to serving student needs, registered nurses seeking
admission to the program are granted a maximum of 60 credits toward
earning a Bachelor of Science degree.
Reflecting the University’s Vincentian and Catholic values, the
program places emphasis on providing quality, cost-effective
healthcare for marginalized populations including the elderly, the
poor and the mentally ill. Benefiting from St. John’s metropolitan
commitment, Healthcare Informatics majors have access to invaluable
health services and human services
internship opportunities at leading New York-area hospitals and
other medical providers.
