MIAMI, May 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dade Medical College launches its new online campus as the college continues to expand its offerings of specialized allied healthcare and nursing education programs for the community.
The college launched their new Bachelor's of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) program and their Associate of Science Degree in Medical Billing and Coding program to their online education students on Monday, April 30.
The college's Bachelor's of Science Degree in Nursing comes at a time when many healthcare institutions are requiring more advanced degrees from their nursing staff. "The best part about offering our BSN program is our ability to address a driving industry need and further help the community by offering the working healthcare professional the flexibility and convenience of earning their advance degree online," says Enrique J. Lopez, Dade Medical College's Dean of Continuing and Online Education. "And with major reform set to take place in 2014 when all hospitals will be required to switch to electronic medical/health records, the Medical Billing and Coding program will be essential to finding and hiring qualified coding specialists," continues Lopez.
Online classes will be taught by the same fully-licensed and certified faculty currently teaching the accredited, on-ground programs at the college. The students' computers will serve as their virtual classroom as they interact with their instructor and fellow students in completing their course work, assignments and examinations. Special metrics will be used to ensure and measure class participation and attendance, two key factors in maintaining a quality program and producing the outcome-based results the college is known for.
"In order to meet our mission of giving access to a quality, outcome-based education to each and everyone, we felt it was important to enhance our program offerings and grow into the online education revolution," says Ernesto Perez, President & CEO of Dade Medical College. "It's the wave of the future and as our tag line reads, at Dade Medical College, your future begins today!"
