Let me introduce to you two excellent programs nurses can join after ther BSc Nursing. They are
1. Master of health administration (Master of Public health) in TISS own words
TISS is a pioneer in health and hospital administration programmes in the country and continues to remain as an innovator in curriculum and delivery. The Master of Public Health (Health Administration) Programme (MPH-HA) develops professional managers and administrators for the health services sector. The health services sector has grown enormously over the past few decades in a highly diversified manner—the government sector in primary care and in hospitals, the not for profit or voluntary sector in health care, health insurance, health information systems—and all of these sectors need capable administrators and analysts. This sector is likely to grow even further in the coming years providing employment to a significant proportion of the work-force.
This programme includes taught courses, three internships and a research project. The programme is designed to be completed within two years; but has a provision to complete over a maximum period of 5 years from the date of registration. Graduates of this programme have been offered managerial positions in national and international health care organisations and projects—both in government and in the healthcare industry. Some opt to work with not-for-profit organisations and community based programmes. The skills they acquire includes the technical skills required for desiging, planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluation of health care programmes and projects and the people skills required for working in and leading a team of professionals. It also orients the students to macro issues relevant to health policy and programming in the country. In the past, students have been employed by key national organisations such as the National Health Systems Resource Centre (NHSRC) or State Health Resource Centres of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the National AIDS Control Organisation and other national health programmes, State Health Societies and major voluntary organisations such as CARE-India, Catholic Relief Service, and Aga Khan Health Services, India. Some are also absorbed into UN organisations such as UNFPA, and international health projects supported by organisations like the World Bank, WHO and DFID. In recent years, they are also finding positions in the IT and the health insurance sectors.
2. Master of hospital administration in TISS own words
The Master of Hospital Administration programme (MHA-Hospital) aims to develop a cadre of professional managers for the rapidly growing hospital sector. As hospitals become an increasingly complex technical environment employing people with widely divergent skills, the need to manage them efficiently without any compromise to the humane and caring environment that the sick need, brings forth the need for a new type of health professional- the hospital manager. The MHA (Hospital) programme prepares students for leadership roles in the hospital sector through training in planning, operational and project management of hospitals including orientation in the managerial aspects of clinical and support services. The programme also imparts training in managing financial, material and information systems in hospital settings and builds the perspectives, attitudes and skills needed for managing people. The MHA (Hospital) Degree is designed to be completed in 4 semesters spanning two years; but has a provision to complete over a maximum period of 5 years from the date of registration.
Students of the MHA (Hospital) programme find jobs to manage a variety of specialised services in hospitals, both in the private and in government sectors. Their job description includes managing various departments of large hospitals as well as planning and designing new services and new hospitals. In the past, students have found employment in leading corporate- and trust-run hospitals all over the country. Of late, there are also job opportunities arising in hospital consultancy firms, health care IT industry, and the health insurance sector.
Selection process consists of a written exam (MCQs – CAT model) and a face to face interview process
Course provides excellent opportunity at different organisations like United Nations, WHO, UNESCO, Variety of NGOS, Hospitals, Consulting Firm’s etc
