While I have not taken any classes at Davenport, I do know that a lot of students prefer the online courses. Online courses are just seven weeks long, starting six times a year, allowing you to complete your degree at a faster pace. Since the classes are online, they're also super flexible because you can choose to log in anytime of the day. If you'd like more information please feel free to contact online admissions at 1-800-203-5323 Hope this helps a little bit!
hello, i have a specific question about Health Information Technology programs?
A&P is supposed to be quite intense with a great deal of information needing to be learned as you seem to realize :) If you're really concerned that you're unable to pass the class or will have difficulty, perhaps you can 'audit' the course (if that's an option) which means that the student attends all of the scheduled classes, preferably takes class notes but does not have to take quizes or tests and does not get a letter grade for the class except an 'audit'. If or when taking the class for course credit, perhaps you can try to take the class with the same instructor. It's also a good idea to try to join a study group and meet at a public place such as the library.
For general career information: and can search 'medical records and health information technicians' or such.
For accredited programs:
Edit: What else could I have added to the post? :)
Should I take a Health Information Technology program or Coding certificates?
Please go with your strengths and passions as opposed to what your family prefers :) They're not the ones who will be working 40+ hours a week for several years to come, right ;) The nursing school curriculum is supposed to be quite rigorous, too, even for those who would like to work in a direct patient contact type of job.
With regard to schooling (for any field), please do *avoid* those private For-profit schools such as devry, ITT tech, strayer, U of P, capella, argosy, pima medical, keiser, ashworth, brown mackie, concorde career, Sanford brown, Everest, penn foster and others. Their course credits usually do ** NOT ** transfer to other schools, even if the for-profit school is regionally accredited as opposed to only nationally accredited.
This consumer site has a lot of negative posts by former students of those for-profit schools, and please heed the students' warnings: and can search.
Please instead consider the more affordable (and usually more reputable) local *community college* and/or the *state-public university* as long as the program is accredited within the industry. Just an fyi that "American public university" is a for-profit school.
For U.S. colleges (including community colleges):
This site is supposed to have accredited programs in HIT:
With regard to medical coding (or medical billing or "medical assistant"), there are *not* supposed to be too many jobs despite what those for-profit schools proclaim. Some employers prefer job applicants for coding to have certification(s) in the field, having graduated from an accredited coding program, and have a couple years of experience doing coding tasks. Having an associate degree in HIM *may* help one to be more marketable in the field but with no guarantees.
