Bachelor's degree program ideal for allied health and wellness professionals

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., April 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Herzing University, an accredited, private nonprofit institution, today announced a new online Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS) degree. The transfer-friendly program is designed for people who already have an allied health degree or certificate and would like to advance their career by earning a bachelor's degree. 

The BSHS degree is one of Herzing's pathway programs, which are tailored to help students maximize previously earned college credit and work experience to efficiently achieve their educational objectives. Students can transfer up to 90 credits into the BSHS program and select any two healthcare electives to help shape their degree emphasis. Enrollment is open immediately and students can begin classes as early as May 4.

"We provide flexible education options that help students meet their goals, no matter where they are on their educational journey," said Herzing University President Renee Herzing. "This new health sciences degree complements our many other healthcare pathways and allied health programs. It is an ideal opportunity for professionals to advance in their current healthcare role or pivot to a healthcare career."

Career options with a BSHS degree include positions in community health and wellness, health education and health promotion. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, efforts to improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs will drive employment growth of health educators and community health workers by 11 percent through 2028.

Herzing students who wish to complete an advanced degree may also take advantage of the school's Dual Enrollment program and earn up to 9 credits toward an MBA in Healthcare Administration while completing their bachelor's degree.

The program is also being offered as a workforce solution for healthcare employers looking to provide degree completion options to their employees. Herzing has several programs and pathways that are designed to help employers acquire and retain talent, from entry-level roles to management positions.

"This program will help organizations provide employees with the training and skills they need in healthcare, health promotion and disease prevention," said Herzing Online President Nigel Longworth. "Because it's fully online, students can earn the degree efficiently and affordably at home, while they continue working." 

In addition to the BSHS, Herzing offers a variety of online and on-campus healthcare programs, including healthcare administration, health information management, medical assisting services, medical coding, dental hygiene, nursing and many others. Program availability varies by campus.

Herzing is a transfer-friendly university with year-round study offering nursing, healthcare, technology and business degree programs. The school's personalized approach to education, accelerated formats and flexible schedules have resonated with students across the country.

Northwestern College creates special new student scholarship - Palos, IL -

Posted: 30 Apr 2020 06:38 PM PDT

[Bridgeview, IL] Northwestern College (NC), a 118-year old regionally accredited, private, family-owned institution of higher learning, has established a scholarship for new students seeking to expand their education during this COVID-19 pandemic. New students that enroll in one of the College's programs and start classes during the Summer 2020 quarter will be awarded a scholarship amounting to 5% off the tuition rate for the duration of their program, as long as requirements are met and maintained.

The College is launching this "New Student Relief Assistance" scholarship for new students who are ineligible for the various emergency funds set out by the federal government for existing students whose educations were disrupted by the pandemic. Those who are now interested in pursuing a new career can save between $1,200 and $3,100 upon program completion; savings is determined by program selected, with Certificate programs spanning 4 quarters (1 year) while Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree programs and AAS to Bachelor of Science Degree programs span 8 quarters (2 years).

To be considered for the scholarship, interested students must first meet all admission requirements and be granted admission to the College. A New Student Relief Assistance Application will need to be completed and submitted along with copies of their high school transcripts. The Summer 2020 quarter begins on June 22.

"People all across the world have been impacted in some way by this COVID-19 pandemic," stated Lawrence Schumacher, Northwestern College President. "Looking to the future and making positive changes in our lives can help to bring something positive out of something so negative. We are hopeful that this scholarship will assist new students considering positive changes to their own futures."

Interested students can enroll in a number of programs offered by Northwestern College, including Medical Assisting; Dental Assisting; Nursing; Radiologic Technology; Health Information Technology; and Health Information Management.

In order to maintain the scholarship for the duration of their program, new students must maintain: 1) continuous full-time enrollment status or take the maximum credits allowed in their declared major for each quarter of attendance; 2) satisfactory academic progress; and 3) good standing on their student financial account at all times.

"We are all anxious to have our worlds return to some semblance of 'normal' without fear of contracting this virus," said President Schumacher. "As we look to the future, Northwestern College is excited to help new students who are interested in obtaining a higher education, and ultimately, a new career for their own futures."

Northwestern College (formerly known as Northwestern Business College until 2008) was founded in 1902 in Chicago at 1747 N. Robey (later renamed "Damen" Avenue) just north of North Avenue. It has continued to be a family-owned institution of higher learning, which began with a mission of providing men and women with specialized training necessary for successful careers in business. When it opened in 1902, the College offered just two programs: Stenography and Accounting. Throughout the years, new programs were added in order to meet the needs of Chicago's rapidly growing workforce. Today, NC continues to meet the needs of career-oriented students with its School of Health Sciences and its Violet L Schumacher School of Nursing.
