The Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Health Services Administration Department, Masters of Health Administration (MHSA) program is proud to announce that it has been granted Candidacy Status by the Commission on Accreditation Healthcare Management Education (CAHME). The CAHME Candidacy Program allows the program to be considered for Candidate Status, designed to establish communication, assistance, and continuity between CAHME and programs in healthcare management seeking CAHME accreditation. The “Candidate” designation indicates that a program has voluntarily committed to participate in a systematic plan of quality enhancement and continuous improvement so that CAHME accreditation is a feasible and operational objective. Candidacy status does not indicate accredited status, nor does it guarantee eventual accreditation. Currently, the MHSA program is participating in its self-study year from 2020-2021 to earn the CAHME accredited status thereafter.
