Educational Questions & Answers

I am a B. Sc Nursing 3rd year student in Kerala and also a D. Pharm holder

Job opportunities in hospital administration are currently good because there is a lot of dynamism in the health sector and the boom in medical tourism is fuelling the growth of existing medical facilities and expansion of hospital chains across various cities in the country. Among the choices for distance education in hospital administration are 1 year PG Diploma in Hospital Management at Annamalai University, Directorate of Distance Education, Annamalainagar (www.annamalaiuniversity.ac.in) and Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai (www.mkudde.org), 1-year PGD in Hospital and Health Care Management by Bharathiar University, Coimbatore (www.b-u.ac.in), MBA Hospital Management by Alagappa University, Directorate of Distance Education, Karaikudi (www.aluniv.org), MBA in Health Care Services by Sikkim Manipal University, Distance Education Wing (www.smuhmts.edu).

MBA Distance Education with specialization in Health Services Management by Anna University (www.annauniv.edu/cde) and the PG Diploma in Hospital Administration by Apollo Hospitals Education & Research Foundation & Medvarsity (www.medvarsity.com). As a nurse also the opportunities for employment are good and after suitable work experience you may also aim for placement in foreign countries that are facing shortage of nurses. I am not aware of distance education in pharmacy bachelor's degree. Nursing graduates may pursue post graduation in nursing and look for teaching, consulting as also regular nursing jobs.
