How to Prepare for a Health Administration Career

Many health professionals advance into administration from nursing, radiology, or another allied health career. Administration assistants who support top administrators may also gain experience and become health administrators. Administration assistants oversee smaller sections of the health care operation, such as nursing, surgery, health information, or therapy. You can advance through a combination of experience and additional health administration degrees or classes.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports aspiring health administrators need at least a bachelor's degree in:

The master's degree in health services administration may provide the greatest opportunity for advancement. All states require nursing care facility administrators hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or school and pass a licensing examination.
