Accreditation

The Health program at SBI Campus - an affiliate of Sanford-Brown is not programmatically accredited.

Accreditation is a voluntary process which may be undertaken by schools to demonstrate compliance with specific standards designed to indicate a level of education quality. Each campus has been approved by its respective Institutional Accreditor to offer all of its currently available programs.

Broadly, across our Sanford-Brown campuses, over 60 programs are currently programmatically accredited. Some accrediting agencies require that a new program graduate its first class before the program is eligible for programmatic accreditation but we strive to run our programs according to the standards of our relevant programmatic accreditors and are committed to seeking programmatic accreditation for our eligible programs. This includes not starting the first class until the clinical site requirement is formally demonstrated, not over seating classes, ensuring the self-study process is part of the educational plan and making certain that the curriculum, facility, equipment, staff and leadership meet the programmatic accreditation requirements.

Healthcare Administration Career Training Begins at SBI

The Health Care Administration: Long Term Care program at the SBI Campus - an affiliate of Sanford-Brown can help prepare students for entry-level positions in exciting healthcare administration careers. Healthcare managers need to combine caring for people with business leadership because they will be responsible for planning and coordinating healthcare delivery, integrating technological innovations and an increased focus on preventive care. Healthcare administration careers are challenging and unique because patient care is constantly updated with new practices and technologies.

As SBI graduates, students can look for entry-level positions in a variety of medical environments for their healthcare administration careers. For example, a student might start their career working in a hospital or nursing home. For students who pursue higher education, other opportunities become available. For example, with a graduate degree, jobs as health care consultants may become available. Chief Hospital Administrators often begin their careers with undergraduate degrees in healthcare administration.

Recently, physicians have started to gather together, forming group practices. In smaller practices, administrative duties are often assigned to a healthcare administrator. They are expected to coordinate patient relations, order supplies, and manage insurance reimbursement, billing and financing. In larger practices (usually 10 or more physicians), there may be multiple administrators to handle each of the specific areas of their medical business.

The work environment in healthcare administration careers varies depending upon the facility. Some healthcare administrators have private offices, while others share space with fellow staff members. Hospitals and nursing homes operate around the clock, which can mean there is more potential for employment opportunities.

In order for students to be effective in their healthcare administration careers, SBI can help them develop a variety of administrative skills. They can acquire oral and written communication and interpersonal skills. Specialization courses cover elder law, medical coding, medical office procedures, medical terminology, medical billing, and more. SBI training also includes an internship, which can give students the real-world experience they need to get an edge in the job market.

Healthcare Administration Degrees

Healthcare Administration degrees cover a wide variety of material to help prepare students for careers in the healthcare field. Students can understand a broad range of knowledge which can enable them to handle social, health, and programmatic positions in many medical institutions.

  • Adult Development and Aging
  • History of the Health Care System

Another important element for a Healthcare Administration Degree is to cover topics like death and dying, medical ethics, multiculturalism, and sociology. Healthcare administrators should also be familiar with management principles and practices. Healthcare Administration degree programs also typically include an internship. Internships are great ways to give students real-life industry experience. Internships are also a good indicator to know if healthcare administration is the right fit for you; some students find jobs with the facility or practice that they interned with.

After completing an undergraduate Healthcare Administration Degree, students often pursue a graduate degree. A graduate Healthcare Administration Degree can open new opportunities for students. For example, with a graduate degree, jobs as health care consultants become available. Chief Hospital Administrators often begin their careers with undergraduate degrees in healthcare administration.

For that reason, all educational programs with the same CIP Code and degree level are combined to calculate program costs. While these combined programs are similar, variations in tuition and fees can exist due to differences in location and/or program structure.

The costs shown are calculated using the average costs of all programs offered by the campus within the same CIP Code and degree type, for students that complete the program within the normal period of time.

Room and Board information represents the average cost of optional institutional housing where offered.

This Campus is part of a larger institution that contains the following additional campuses:

Program Completion

The US Department of Education categorizes educational programs offered at an Institution by CIP code (Classification of Instructional Program codes as defined by the Department of Education) and degree level (Associates, Bachelors, etc…). For that reason, all similar educational programs for the given Institution1, with the same CIP Code and degree level are combined when determining On Time Completion Rates.

On-Time Completion Rates are calculated using the gainful employment formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements.  The statistics track all students who graduated from their program between 7/1/2012 and 6/30/2013 and have reached completion within the program’s designed timeframe.  For example, for a two-year program, the on-time completion rate would include all graduated students who started two years prior.   

Academic Calendar breaks that occur during continuous enrollment are considered when determining if a student graduated within the designed timeframe; however, summer breaks typically incorporated into the normal timeframe for more traditional schools are not included in this determination.  The instructional months displayed represent the highest amount of all versions of the program found at the institution; therefore, depending on the specific program version or campus location, the instructional months may be a shorter amount of time.  Each student is measured against the designed timeframe of their specific program version when determining if they graduated “on-time” or not; as a result, this determination may not be made against the displayed instructional months should a shorter or discontinued timeframe be applicable to a student’s specific program version.  One instructional month represents four instructional weeks.

Graduation Rate

A first-time student has no prior postsecondary experience before enrolling at this campus. This means that a student who attended another college, university or other postsecondary school before enrolling at this school is not included in the calculation. The rate also does not include students initially enrolled part-time, taking individual classes (as compared to enrolling in a full program), or only auditing classes. These rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. The statistics track all first-time, full-time and certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students who began school during the date range and have completed within 150% of the normal program length. For example, for a two-year program, the graduation rate would include students who had completed within three years of beginning the program. This statistic is not specific to one program alone; rather, all applicable undergraduate programs are included in this overall rate.
