Dr. Chanadra Young-Whiting

Greetings, to all perspective students and visitors. I want to Welcome you to the Bachelors of Health Services Administration (BHSA) Program's Website!

The Bachelor of Health Services Administration Program’s MISSION in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CNHS) at Florida International University (FIU) is to: Prepare diverse health services managers as leaders in the delivery of high quality, accessible, culturally competent, evidence-based, management of healthcare organizations within an ever changing, highly technological and global environment. The program focuses on a balance of evidence and value-based approaches to healthcare management and policies that promote better community health and healthcare services with a special emphasis on urban and multicultural populations.

Health Services Administration is one of the most important and exciting areas of business and healthcare. FIU CNHS's Bachelor of Health Services Administration VISION is: to become the leading healthcare management program known locally and globally for developing exceptional managers and leaders within multicultural, multigenerational urban healthcare organizations, particularly for diverse students.

FIU's CNHS Department of Health Services Administration include faculty who are academic researchers and healthcare executives from leading South Florida Healthcare Organizations.

The BHSA Program is developing:

  • an active student health professional association,
  • internships opportunities for BHSA students,
  • a dedicated HSA Alumni Network, and
  • a dynamic advisory board whose members represent many of the leading health care organizations in South Florida.


This is an exciting time for potential and future Health Service Administrators. Healthcare needs talented individuals to fill existing and newly created positions who will be challenged by the rapidly changing health care systems particularly in our dynamic multicultural environment. Future Health Services Administrators will have an opportunity to make significant contributions to healthcare organizations and to the communities in which they serve and work. I am certain that our highly skilled and educated graduates will play a major and significant role in today's healthcare organizations by making a difference in today's healthcare system locally and globally.

This website is designed to provide you with general information about the BHSA program. Please take your time to explore our website to see what the BHSA program have to offer.

If you have any suggestions to make this Website more helpful to you and/ or any questions, please contact the BHSA Department Office Manager: Rosa Montenegro at or our BHSA Academic Advisors: Barbara Anderson at or Jacquelyn Besoner at
