Bachelor of Professional Studies Healthcare Administration - Long Term Care

The Bachelor of Professional Studies (B.P.S.) in Healthcare Administration is designed to develop in students the foundational knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary to gain entry into the field of healthcare administration. Within the degree program, students can select one of three major areas of concentration as their objective.

The Long-Term Care Concentration is primarily focused on addressing needs, issues, and changes in facilities for those who need help with physical and/or emotional challenges over an extended period of time. The need for long-term care help might be due to a terminal condition, disability, illness, injury or the infirmity of old age. It can be temporary or ongoing. Long-term care services may be provided in a variety of settings such as assisted-living facilities, nursing homes, adult day care services, rehabilitation from a hospital stay, recovery from an acute illness, or chronic medical conditions. Those that study Long-Term Care will gain an understanding of the terminology, laws and regulations, quality of life issues, as well as developing skills to administrate in a variety of long-term care settings.
