“Our healthcare programs provide a tremendous avenue to enhance one’s knowledge and expertise in the field,” said Andrea Cochran, program director. “These courses have helped students start a new career, change careers or advance in their current position. Many of them also serve as preparation for specific certification exams.”
Nearly 40 instructors teach the 12 classroom-based professional certificate programs. Instructors are full-time experts in their respective fields and bring real-world, practical experience to share with the students. They represent hospitals such as WellStar, Northside, Piedmont, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta as well as pharmacies at Publix, CVS and WellStar. Impressively, graduates boast a 94% national certification exam pass rate, surpassing the national average of 73% and the Georgia mark of 64%.
As one of the fastest growing employment fields, healthcare was recently cited by the AJC as one of Georgia’s hottest jobs – growing by 17% since 2009. In addition, the Bureau of Labor Statistics named healthcare as the largest industry showing the highest amount of growth of any other field – projected to add 3 million more jobs by 2016.
