“The Healthcare Management Program at JCHS closely aligned
with my current position, and
helped me to grow in that role
as I approached graduation.
But, for me classes won’t end
with graduation! I have been
accepted into a master’s program. This Program provided me
with the experiences I
needed to successfully continue my education.”
