Question |Answer | |What are your overall impressions |My overall impressions of the BSHA program are basically above average by means of I’m very | |of the BSHA program? |satisfied with the course assignments and the instructors I have had during this learning | | |experience.I feel it has led me up to the starting point of my new career which gives me | | |the education background to jump start me to current status of what is going on in the health| | |care industry of today. It is very important that the curriculum is up to date with | | |information as well as software teachings that will give each individual student the | | |knowledge they need to succeed in this industry.
|What did you like the most about |What I like most about the program was the discussion forum from each student and | |this program? |collaboration with each instructor. Although this is was an online platform of learning, it | | |was very engaging at times and it almost made me feel as if I was in a classroom setting with| | |the intellectual conversation of topics that were discussed. I also enjoyed the learning | | |team forums and working together as a team.That is very important as each individual needs | | |to be able to work with a group and not stand alone especially in an online setting. Its | | |important that we learn social interaction and work well with others. | |What would you like to see added? |Well the program is excellent like it is; but I would love to have had more coursework in the| | |coding or health information management aspect of it.
I received my Associates degree in | | |healthcare administration with a concentration in medical records; and to be honest there | | |wasn’t that much in medical records that I could actually learn from as I have experience in | | |this field already and it was not anything new that I received. What I did find out was | | |there is nothing in health information management and that is actually what I wanted to | | |pursue my graduate degree in.So I have to substitute it for something else or attend | | |another university which I’m not willing to do.
I’m happy here as I know and understand the | | |grass is not greener on the other side…. | |After reviewing the outcomes |This program has prepared me to meet the outcomes I have listed; however, again, I can say I | |listed above, do you feel the |was expecting more health information management coursework and preparing me for medical | |program prepared you to meet these|records as this was the concentration that I started with.The billing aspects of the course| |outcomes? If not, which ones do |were self-explanatory and not complicated to grasp. I wanted to see more management | |you feel you did not meet? |structure in computer programming with coding software instead of using SmartDraw to design a| | |facility. I am not looking to be a architect; however, I did enjoy the class; but could not | | |grasp the concept of the software as it was not user friendly in my opinion.My classmates | | |enjoyed it with no problem; but a few of us couldn’t get the concept together to enjoy like | | |others. | |Do you feel prepared for a career |Yes I feel prepared for a career in the health care industry.
I returned to school to obtain| |in the health care industry? |my degree as this is what I felt was missing in order for me to obtain that job necessary to | | |move forward in this industry.I have the experience needed and many wanted a degree to | | |match up with what my experience spoke of. Now that I have accomplished this, I am moving in| | |the right direction of obtaining management opportunities and hopefully working on my | | |graduate studies this fall to obtain that director position I spoke of in my paper I finished| | |in week 2. Wish me luck….
I have arrived… |
