I feel like it is important to understand how health care facilities run, and how the health system works in order to be a good nurse.

Braxton Gray, Nursing Student

I chose to minor in health administration because I decided that I wanted to build on my Health Science major and gain valuable health administration skills that would help me get into a Master’s in Health Administration program after graduation.

Meet Pa’Shae Hawkins

Graduated: 2018
Major: Business
Minor: Health Administration

Current Title: Human Resources Manager
Current Employer: CommuniCare Family of Companies
Industry: Long-Term Care/Post-Acute Care

I was always interested in becoming part of the health care world. I also wanted to help people.

The minor fit my major well. I ultimately want to own my own healthcare business. I learned about important business principals in my major and learned all about health care and how it works in my minor.

I do everything human resources related in my company. CommuniCare is one of the largest providers of post-acute care in the nation. The company has long-term care centers, assisted living communities, independent rehabilitation centers, skills nursing rehabilitation centers and long-term acute care hospitals under its umbrella. I hire employees, work on benefits, focus on employee retention, manage payroll, and manage anything else that has a human resources component to it.

I started out as a Human Resources Generalist and am now a Human Resources Manager at the same company.

I learned about health care operations and terminology in the Health Administration Minor.  This knowledge helps me do my job better.
