Stevenson University's Population-Based Care Coordination and population health certificate program online is designed for registered nurses with a BSN who want to expand their knowledge and practice in the growing fields of population-based healthcare coordination. The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) resulted in drastic changes in the U.S. healthcare delivery system and presented multiple challenges for healthcare providers. Among these challenges included the need for expert care coordination by knowledgeable providers who are well acquainted with the complexities of healthcare delivery systems, insurance policies, and the varied needs of clients.
The Population-Based Care Coordination and population health certificate program online provides nurses the knowledge and skills necessary to provide a population health approach to care coordination services for diverse populations. Coursework can be completed entirely online for this 15-credit hour program. Registered nurses prepared at the bachelor's or master's level are eligible to enroll in Stevenson's Population-Based Care Coordination and population health certificate program online.
Stevenson also offers an online master's in Nursing with concentrations in Nursing Education, Nursing Leadership/Management, and Population-Based Care Coordination.
