At this time of year, it is always good to start thinking about what you want to achieve next year. Once the holidays are over, having some exciting new goals can be really exciting and invigorating, and one great one to consider if you are currently taking time out of your career to look after your children is getting a higher qualification.
Furthering Your Healthcare Administration Career Later by Studying Now
An MHA is a highly sought after and credible masters to have if you want to work in a healthcare environment and can ensure that when your kids are older and you want to return to professional life, you will have your pick of good opportunities.
To do an MHA, you need your first degree in a related field, and it helps if you have a few years of relevant professional experience – for instance in hospital or clinical admin. Of course, what you also need is the time to do it, which is what puts many moms off going for it.
Happily, thanks to the wealth of great online MHA degree programs on offer now, there is no need to think you can’t study now to enjoy a more senior and lucrative role later.
The Flexibility of An Online MHA
There are several reasons getting your masters online is pretty viable for a lot of stay at home moms. For one thing, you can fit study around your kids, so you don’t have to feel guilty for not spending time with them because you need to be at lectures, or skipping study because a child is sick.
For another, you can work at your own pace and take as long as you need to attain your online MHA. If it takes even years longer than full-time study because you want to only study part-time, this doesn’t matter – you’ll still get it, and you can set your goals to qualify around the time you expect that you’ll be ready to go back to your career based on the ages of your kids and work to those instead of a college’s schedule.
An Exciting New Challenge
Being a stay at home mom is full of challenges, but a lot of women miss the rather different challenges of their former jobs. By starting your MHA, you will still feel a part of the healthcare industry, and be learning about new and interesting aspects of management and strategy that can be a welcome change from being engaged only with stuff relating to your kids as a new or new-ish mom!
Studying for your MHA will help you earn more and give your kids a better life later on, but it is also something you can do for yourself so you aren’t always in ‘mommy mode’!
So, why not do some research into the online options and make 2018 the year you start your masters?
