The College of Health Sciences and Education at Misericordia University recently introduced the region’s first graduate program that works to improve health care quality and patient safety. The Healthcare Analytics program is a 36-credit Master of Science degree program available fully online beginning in August. The new academic program prepares professionals who use data to communicate and enact meaningful improvements in the delivery of health care. It stresses the importance of health care professionals working together as equal team members with one common goal, while ensuring the voices of patients and families are heard throughout the continuum of care.
The Healthcare Analytics program also offers an 18-credit post baccalaureate certificate. Students can apply the credits earned through the completion of the certificate program to the requirements for the master’s degree.
Misericordia also offers a master’s degree in nursing in a fully online format and an MBA program predominantly online with the opportunity for students to specialize in the following areas: management, accounting, and human resources management. In addition, a Master of Science in Organizational Management degree with a specialization in nonprofit management and fundraising is available.
