"The priorities in healthcare have evolved in the last decade and at American Sentinel University we strive to transform healthcare through education. We help build a more educated and diverse healthcare-focused workforce capable of addressing increasingly complex healthcare challenges," says Judy Burckhardt, Ph.D., MAEd, MSN, RN, Dean and Professor, Nursing and Healthcare Management Programs at American Sentinel University.
