Hi Melissa,

Thank you for your service and for posting your question.

Please see the following link for a list of healthcare-specific certifications deemed important in the industry. You should note that some of the included certifications call for a degree higher than the Bachelor level.

I know that you've applied to our Mentoring Program, and we hope to pair you shortly with a mentor who has healthcare experience; questions like these will be important to ask. I would also recommend the Community feature on this site, through which you can connect with other advisors in the field directly.

I hope that this is helpful information, but please let me or your point of contact, Taylor, know if we can answer additional questions.

Hi Melissa!
Thanks much for your service!
Healthcare Administration is a broad field. In itself is a Masters in HA. However, if you check this for specific field or just for Healthcare Administration, it can help you! Open up a log in for job search. You're bound to find something!
Hope this helps.
