Online Healthcare Degrees Remain Most Popular

As the baby boomer generation had aged, the demand for qualified healthcare providers has compounded. The result has been a boom in healthcare jobs as well as those interested in the field of healthcare. Colleges that offer online degrees have noted this phenomenon with the high enrollment numbers in their online healthcare programs. According to USPRwire:

With the continuing shortage of qualified professionals in the news, health care programs remain at the top of the list for students seeking an online education. The government estimates that medical careers will continue to mushroom in popularity for decades in order to fill a very real need.

Stan Banks, president of Virginia College Online, notes, "We offer two-year associate degrees in some of the most important medical careers. For instance, Healthcare Reimbursement can lead to a medical career with an HMO, insurance company, hospital or doctor's office. Medical insurance paperwork has become more and more complex over the years, and specialists are always needed who understand the system. Health Services Management is a bachelor's degree program for those who are already working in the field and who would like to move into management."

Virginia College is only one of the many colleges that offer online healthcare degrees. For a comprehensive list of online colleges and their respective healthcare degrees, visit our healthcare degree page.
