1. How has your perception of healthcare changed or evolved relative to completing this course?

My perception of healthcare has most definitely evolved since the beginning of the semester. At the beginning, I did not know the whole intake of the ACA, as well as not knowing all the different types of delivery models. Learning more about the ACA has given me more of an insight on the opportunities that are given and limited in our country. From this course, I have gained knowledge on some of the main backgrounds of healthcare, which is going to benefit me moving forward in the medical field. 

2. What role do you envision for yourself after completion of your degree?

After the completion of my degree, I am not quite sure where I will be located or quite what my role will be. When I graduate, I will have my BSN, so becoming a nurse and entering a new environment with new staff will take some getting used to. I think that with the knowledge gained in the class, as well as having the healthcare management background, is going to benefit me no matter where I end up!

3. How will the concepts learned in this course be applied to your current role? If you are currently not in a healthcare role, describe how you will apply the course concepts in the future?

The concepts learned in this course are going to be beneficial in my future job position, being that I need to be applicable when knowing the types of healthcare models, etc. The knowledge that I learned in this class is going to allow me to be able to talk to patients about the different types of plans and how they can each be beneficial. This class has also taught me more on a professional level, which is going to be very important in the future.

1. How has your perception of healthcare changed or evolved relative to completing this course?
Since I have previously worked in/ around a healthcare setting, I feel that my perception of healthcare has not really changed. But, I do think the class helped me expand my knowledge and increase what I already knew about certain topics. It helped give greater insight on some things from a more professional level instead of a consumer one. I feel that this is a good course for people who want to learn more about healthcare even if they don’t want to go into the healthcare management field.
 
2. What role do you envision for yourself after completion of your degree?
After I complete my degree, I think I will have more than just a regular role where I work. With the management background, I feel like I would be treated as more of a leader than a follower because I know some “behind-the-scenes” information that some of my fellow coworkers may not know. 
 
3. How will the concepts learned in this course be applied to your current role? If you are currently not in a healthcare role, describe how you will apply the course concepts in the future.
I will apply the course concepts in my field of study by being able to talk to patients about healthcare and what are good providers for whichever they have/ I would also use knowledge from this class to talk to young adult patients who have just got kicked off their parents plan and have no idea what different plans are and etc. I will also use the information gained in this course to be more understanding of people who cannot afford the best healthcare and try to find more options within their price range.
