Southeastern Louisiana University’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences has been approved by the Board of Regents to begin offering two new certificates within the college. Beginning this fall, students can start taking classes toward earning certificates in Population Health Management and Digital Health Management.
Assistant Dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences Ralph Wood said population health management prepares adults to enhance skills to improve health within and across populations. Potential employment includes mid-level work settings, hospitals, health care clinics, consulting companies, government health services, insurance providers, community facilities, and not-for-profit, as well as managed care organizations. The certificate requires 21 hours and includes course work in population health, chronic human disease states, health informatics, social determinants of health and health disparities, health coaching and behavior change, data management, and practical experience in interprofessional education and practice. The Certificate in Digital Health Management is relevant for those seeking a degree or those who wish to enhance existing educational experience in digital health management. The certificate requires 18 credit hours and includes course work in technology, chronic disease management, data analytics, health informatics, and project management.
