    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will expand your knowledge on the difference from you being a patient in a medical center to becoming an administrator over that center. You learn how to cite resources you did not write on your own. Most interesting of all, you communicate with people from all over the world such as India, New York, Puerto Rico, and so on. The entire course is online, and you can do it wherever and whenever you want to.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was learning how to use the Walden Library database as well as applying the expected materials to every assignment given. I learned to become disciplined no matter what goes on around me. The instructor is very understanding, and she genuinely wants you to succeed. She will respond to your email 24-48 hrs later and if you do not understand all she says if just ask me. I learned it is a different ballgame from being an administrator and a patient. There are many avenues to take, but providing the best quality of care, access, and affordability for any patient no matter the background is top priority. Discussions are the utmost important part of the class because you are learning new ideas and concepts from your peers, as well as they are learning from you.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be disciplined. Have great time management skills. You can only do one thing at a time. Expand on peer discussions. Do your research thoroughly. *Make sure you learn, memorize, and do APA style correctly* Contact the instructor if you need her.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because by the time you finish you have a completely different perspective and understanding of what it means to be a patient in any medical facility versus what it means to be an administrator over that facility. The instructor is very laid back, and she makes sure the class has an understanding of what is going on. If you email her she responds within 24-48 hrs always. She is very encouraging and she is a joy to have as a professor. Your classmates are interesting because of every different background that could be represented from across the world is.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were making sure APA citing style was correct for every assignment, using the Walden Library database along with the course material. The projects were a lot of fun because you gain insight on what types of healthcare and costs other countries use to give quality of health, access, and affordability, if at all, to the people of that country. I also learned the United States uses more money than any other country in world, and it is a shame. On the other hand, the United States is much more advance in technology than countries that are becoming developed.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be disciplined. Learn and memorize APA style like the back of your hand. You can only do one thing at a time. Use the Walden Library database, and make sure you read the content materials from the book for each module given. Contact the instructor if you need her.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it is important to learn about the US health care system it is a topic that effects everyone. It is important to be informed about what is going on in the States. It is also good to learn about other health care systems around the world.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about health care systems in other countries and it was interesting. I felt the US could learn a lot from other countries. Hearing other politicians condemn the single-payer system made me feel apprehensive about it. After looking at the evidence and peer-reviewed journals, I learned I need to do the research myself to make an educated decision.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you use APA format, cite your all your resources, and there are websites and youtube videos to help you get the formatting right. Additionally, make sure you read the discussion prompts carefully and fulfill all those requirements. Even if your writing not good, it will get better, but make sure you are answering the question asked. Lastly, use Grammarly!!! It is free and taught me how to be a better writer. I started recognizing common mistakes I make and started correcting them on my own. It makes you more confident in your writing and is a good skill to have going forward.
