The B.S. in Healthcare Leadership program gave me the leadership knowledge, training, and skills I needed to excel in the positions that I currently hold. Without the knowledge from this program, I would not have been able to obtain these positions. The instructors always gave real-world examples, work-related knowledge, and instruction to help me better apply course material to my everyday work.
