No Experience Necessary

Question by Lily: Do I need a bachelor’s in a health related field in order to get a Masters in Health Administration?
And would it be difficult to get a job in administration in a health care setting without a undergrad degree in a health related field?
Answer by jannsody
One would typically need a bachelor’s degree before entering a master’s degree in health administration. Other professions such as occupational therapy and physical therapy sometimes have a combination bachelor/master’s degree program but don’t believe so for health administration.
Here is a website for more general career info: US occupational outlook handbook www.bls.gov/oco and can type into search ‘healthcare administrator’ or ‘medical administrator’.
And just a word to the wise, please stay away from those ‘online schools’ such as university of phoenix, strayer u, devry u and kaplan university as they are not typically seen as reputable to employers.
