What Sort of Work Experience Should I Have?

Relevant work experience will depend on the administrative job you are seeking. If you want to be a clinical manger, you must be an expert in field you wish to manage. For example, the manager’s of the nursing departments often hold Master of Science in Nursing degrees and have many years of clinical experience as a nurse in a number of difference specialties.

For those seeking a more general health administration job, serving as the leader on a team can bode very well for your career prospects. Showing that you can work alongside a number of different people can also help, especially since health administrators are constantly interacting with many staff and board members.

Finally, an interest in and ability to learn new technological advancements in the field of healthcare will be of the utmost importance in the coming years. A growing reliance on electronic health records and robotic surgical assistants means health administrators must be able to embrace new developments.
