Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Quality Improvement

Career Outlook

The Healthcare Quality Improvement Graduate Certificate Program was designed for healthcare professionals who primarily practice in the clinical setting looking to advance their careers by gaining practical skills in the principles and science of quality improvement. Through completion of this program, health care professionals will be able to engage in the clinical application and utility of the key tenets of quality improvement to optimize healthcare service delivery. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of healthcare occupations including health information technologists is projected to grow at a rate of 15-17%, much faster than the average for all occupations. This projected growth is mainly due to an aging population, leading to greater demand for healthcare services.

Career paths may include:

  • Health professions manager
  • Health professions administrators
  • Lead clinical practitioners
  • Health professions educators
  • Health education specialists

    Finance Your Education

    The University of Nebraska offers some of the most affordable tuition rates in the region, particularly for our online programs. Explore the array of funding options to finance your education in a way that makes sense for you.

    Online tuition rates are calculated by credit hour and college offering the course and, because the University of Nebraska is a public institution supported by Nebraska taxpayers, Nebraska residents may receive a lower tuition rate than out-of-state students.

    Cost Per Credit





    Note: Campuses may charge additional fees; see the Paying for School page for more details.

    We believe cost should not be a barrier to accessing higher education, even for online programs. Financial aid and scholarships are available for many students. Please see the Paying for School page for additional information and links to campus financial aid resources.

    Our programs are an ideal way for military, veterans, and dependents to advance education with military advisers and staff on each campus, flexible deployment and activation policies, and generous acceptance of transfer credits.
