MHA 505 Week 1 Assignment: Gaining Support
Are you currently employed? If so, are you employed in the healthcare industry?
I am currently not working with any organization, , however, I am currently looking for active employment, I intend on working full time and taking the classes part-time, since the online classes are highly flexible. The MHA program that I am currently enrolled in encourages students to be involved in active employment even as they undertake the program to facilitate the implementation of skills and knowledge obtained in class in the real world (University of Phoenix., n.d.). Therefore, once I begin the job-hunting process, I intend to secure employment within the healthcare industry, where I can exercise the skills and knowledge gained through my bachelor program and position myself to actively implement the newly acquired skills, as required by the current program. Finally, active employment will contribute to my professional exposure, where I will be in a position to interact with challenges in healthcare, and witness how professionals develop goal-oriented solutions, using the systems theory (Wright, 2018). Active employment will help understand how systems work, factors contributing to poor results from the systems, and how systems can be used to develop better behavioral patterns (Wright, 2018).

Our intention throughout the master’s program is to tie in the activities and assignments to your professional career to encourage you to build capital with your employer. Your master’s degree and the skills that you learn during it should support and strengthen your current and future positions in the health care industry. To do this effectively, you will need to work with your employer and communicate your ambition to apply your knowledge and skill sets to effect positive outcomes at the organization.
Write a 350- to 700-word letter addressed to your immediate supervisor(s) and provide them with relevant details about the MHA program, what you expect to gain from it, and how it will benefit the organization.
