Under Kent, the program has begun a year earlier than projected, providing a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Services with focuses on either long-term care or information management. "It's been selling like hotcakes,"
Kent said on the current popularity of the program.
Kent and Browne both served with a group to investigate the
feasibility, marketability and desire for an undergraduate degree. The group included current graduate students, Dr. Mark Meyers, dean of the College of Social Sciences, Health & Education, and Dr. Nancy Linenkugel, chair of the graduate Health Services program. Their investigative focus was if and where students can be hired with a Bachelor of Science degree immediately after graduation.
By training, Browne is a licensed
psychologist, having worked at Miami University, Northern Kentucky University, Indiana University and numerous
other organizations in health care services, career advising and psychology prior to coming to Xavier.
"It will be a little bit like coming
home for me," Browne said. "Health Care is where I hang my professional hat. My goal is to have students come out of this program knowing what they want to do and be prepared to do it so that they can get the jobs and roles that lead them to having the kind of lives they want to lead."
Ultimately, Browne wants to bring the undergraduate program to the standards of the graduate program, which has been ranked number one in the nation by Modern Healthcare.
The interim director for Career Services has not been announced, but a search will be conducted this spring, according to Browne.
