NORCROSS, GA--(Marketwired - Oct 18, 2016) - Ashworth College, a leading online college based in Norcross, Georgia has announced the official launch of the Madison School of Healthcare. The school, which has been built on a strong foundation of healthcare programs that Ashworth College has offered for nearly 30 years, specializes in flexible online programs for busy professionals who are focused on advancing their career while also balancing work, school and family. Ashworth is committed to helping students graduate without the burden of high student loan debt and offers some of the lowest tuition rates in the country for healthcare degree and career training programs. All courses are nationally accredited and structured to achieve the highest standards.

"The healthcare industry is experiencing tremendous growth -- it's expected to have more employment opportunities than any other sector between 2014 and 2024," said Rob Klapper, President of Ashworth College. "Madison School of Healthcare grew out of the need to prepare students to reach these new career opportunities as well as meet the needs of employers seeking highly-trained medical professionals."

Madison currently offers more than 25 in-demand healthcare degree and career training programs with additional programs in development.

Building upon the registered nursing skill set, the program integrates professional development, critical thinking, quality improvement, safety and various soft skills to foster professional practice.
