$15000 Doctorate NA
#1
https://www.vul.edu/dha/curriculum.html

I found this interesting.Religious school national accrediated doctorate, for healthcare administration. I don't think the NA/RA divide would matter when it comes to a religous school background considering most hospitals are religious.

Thoughts?

Yeah, they're not bad. They have a football team apparently... so, I guess, they made a mark on my list...

I don't know about administration but I think that hospitals are used to hiring people with "unaccredited" degrees. That is, it's not uncommon to find something like a programmatically accredited phlebotomist or nursing assistant certificate/degree. It's not NA or RA but it's still acceptable because the program(s) themselves are accredited.

When I think of programmatic accreditors, I think of accreditors recognized by the Department of Education or at least CHEA. When they accredit specialized institutions, such as ABA accrediting a standalone law school, they become national accreditors. Many low-level allied health programs are not accredited at all. They should have a state license to operate, and they should meet the requirements for national certification or a state license if required. I wouldn't necessarily compare a hospital executive position to a phlebotomist, but most private employers don't know the difference between national and regional accreditation. They usually are aware of programmatic accreditation, such as NAACLS for clinical laboratory science.

I would not say most hospitals are religious today. This may vary by location. There is not a hospital where I live that is affiliated with a church/faith/religion. Hospitals are businesses. A great deal of research needs to be done on religious NA schools. There are MANY that have NUMEROUS issues. You also need to think of your future, if you want to teach, NA is not going to work.

^ Most people have no intention of teaching, but it's something to consider if you're in the small minority who wants to. That being said, a DHA is really a degree meant for mobility in the hierarchy of healthcare administration and is more of a topper to your experience in that field than it is a foot-in-the-door to a new career.

I have no intention of being a teacher at all. Zero. So I think that it might be a viable option for me to make the jump from to a healthcare administration job down the line.

I spent more time talking to people in this degree program. I spoke to some of the faculty via email. I'm actually very impressed with this. I never thought I'd do a masters, but, now I'm thinking of doing 1 more year of school after UMPI and dot his, and just going straight to a doctorate. I've never thought of it before. Most of the people in this program are nurse practitioners or hospital administrators. I ran into one person with a background in simply leadership and they're liking the program.

The amount of work seems equivalent to what I'm getting at UMPI. I think I'll risk the $5000 extra to take a semester of this, to see if I can do it. Everyone I've been talking to has told me the first semester is the worst So if I can get through it I know I can do it.

I know this is NA, and not the "gold standard" RA, but, NA is still a silver standard, and acceptable. I plan on letting my reputation speak for me, but, with the degrees behind me to use it to push myself forward. I mostly want to do this for me. While this is a Doctor of Healthcare Administration, but the curriculum is almost all administrative and leadership based. This is a research doctorate not a dissertation doctorate, so the ability to create original knowledge is built into the whole program versus a full on dissertation. Basically kind of like those EdDs that require a ton of published articles, you'd be working on these with this program, at an accelerated rate.

It's very early on in this program, the first cohort graduates next week. I want to join for their 5th or 6th cohort ,enough time for them to get their kinks down, want to push graduation rates, and probably before they tighten requirements. Only a single class (DHA 806) is about Healthcare. But, it involves world wide health.

It's a legitimate program. You'll be fine.
