HI, I am posting to the question for the RN about taking the couse for Healthcare Mang. at PCDI.
I am enrolled in the Healthcare Management Degree at Ashworth. I really like the program and recommend it. They are nationally accredited, not regionally. The cost of $789 is for only 1 semester, and there are 4 total semesters, plus fees which total just under $4,000. They have been around for awhile I don't question their credibility, my local community college will accept their credits.
Since you are already an RN I think that the course material would be a boring review of basic things you already know. I really don't think that having this degree on your business card is going to be that great. If it was me and I was an RN I would take the 4 grand and specialize in something more specific that only someone at the RN level is able to take. Maybe like getting your RN/Anesthesia lisense. That would be impressive.
Don't get me wrong, Ashworth is a good college but your so far ahead of what they are teaching that for you I don't think it would be the best option, it would be like taking a step down.
And being an RN is pretty impressive already
If your going into consulting for yourself, taking business management clasess might be a good choice also, and Ashworth has a degree for that also
I hope this helps
