Education built for working adults

Today, you don’t have to choose between working and going to school. When John Sperling opened these doors in 1976, he changed higher education forever, so you could change your future.  By taking one course at a time, you can find balance between your professional and personal obligations while taking steps toward earning your degree.

Our healthcare degree programs provide you with the skills you can use in a variety of healthcare organizations.  Our nursing and healthcare degree programs are aligned with the standards of leading healthcare organizations like the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE).

Our MHA program was recently granted candidacy status by the Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME).  Our Nursing programs are accredited by CCNE.*

*The Master of Science in Nursing programs at University of Phoenix are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, 655 K Street NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001, 202-887-6791. 

When you earn your healthcare degree online, you’ll benefit from the flexibility of learning from your home, rather than wasting precious time maneuvering your schedule. Seize the opportunity to help drive change in this evolving field.  Get an education that will help you make your mark.

University of Phoenix and California Association of Healthcare Leaders have partnered together to offer their active members 1 waived course fee for every 5 courses completed within 365 days.  We’ve lowered tuition and locked it in.  Keep the same tuition until you graduate from your degree program, even if it takes longer than you planned.  That’s our promise.
