LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Spalding University, a Louisville institution with a rich history of training health care workers, is set to launch one of the nation's only online certificate programs in critical care transport, which will provide licensed registered nurses and paramedics with the skills and knowledge to care for and transport critically ill or injured patients.

Designed through a partnership with leading medical education company FlightBridgeED, Spalding's Post-Licensure Certificate in Critical Care Transport is accepting applications now at Spalding.edu/CriticalCareTransport with online courses set to begin on Jan. 30. The program, which is pending approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), consists of four, three-credit-hour courses and can be completed in one semester.

The program will help address the nation's demand for health care workers capable of initiating critical medical interventions that can save patients' lives in emergency transport settings, including ground or air ambulance. The certificate will also provide registered nurses and paramedics with the skills and knowledge to advance their careers.

Students in the certificate program will explore a range of principles related to critical care transport, including resuscitation, trauma, and burns, pharmacology, leadership, and research. One of the four courses is devoted exclusively to principles of transport ventilation and ventilator management.

Spalding's CCT certificate program will prepare nurses and paramedics to sit for advanced professional certification exams.

A decade from now, students who want to study business may not have to go to graduate school or even get a degree, as more top institutions aim to sell potential students on becoming lifelong learners.

"It makes no sense that people should get all of their education in their 20s, because if we live until our 80s there should be many points in time when one could come back and get re-educated," says Debora Spar, a senior associate dean in charge of Harvard Business School Online.

Business schools are already racing to revamp their programs to add technology and data-science skills that employers want. Demand for postgraduate and lifelong learning options is expected to grow in the coming years.

"The future is likely to find not just growing demand for one-year M.B.A.s, but also for part-time, executive, blended, online and stackable degrees, potentially with the stackable M.B.A. being delivered by different schools at different times in a student's career," says a study from Carrington Crisp, a business-school consulting firm, referring to the practice of "stacking" a full degree by paying for and studying school modules when it suits the student.

Before the coronavirus pandemic, M.B.A. programs, the flagship degree of business schools, had been struggling to attract students away from a hot job market. The pandemic-related economic downturn has sent applications soaring at some of the top M.B.A. programs, but admissions experts aren't sure how long the boom will last or if some of the middle-tier M.B.A. programs will benefit in the same way.
