From Administering Healthcare to Healthcare Administration

Kathleen Dittrick has been caring for patients for more than three decades. However, when she became the Director of Resident Health at the Oaks, a retirement center in Denville, N.J., Dittrick decided to further her education.

"I wanted to learn more about being a manager," says Dittrick, who already holds a B.S. in nursing with years of practical experience. "The College of Saint Elizabeth, with its small class sizes and knowledgeable professors, was the perfect place for me to learn."
