Masters in Healthcare in Virginia

Health care is a vital industry in Virginia, where it spurred $27.7 billion in economic activity in 2010 and with health care facilities employing an astounding 129,000 workers, according to Virginia Business. While much has been made of the nursing shortage in Virginia, the many hospitals, health care systems, clinics, and nursing homes will also need effective managers and clinical leaders to run those organizations and their complex departments effectively. In 2011, Virginia was home to 6,040 medical and health services managers who earned an annual average salary of $95,400, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. A Virginia Masters in Healthcare could be just the credential that sets an experienced nurse apart from the competition for a position as nurse director or chief nursing executive, or opens up other leadership opportunities for other health care practitioners.
