The University Bound Network recognizes the prospective student’s need for real, honest information and aims to be the ultimate resource in the online education industry.
Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
Record numbers of students are turning to online education because of its increased accessibility over a traditional ground school. Unfortunately, many for-profit schools see this as a chance to cash in, putting their own monetary interests ahead of the needs of their students. Acknowledging the need for a legitimate student resource, The University Bound Network announces the launch of Healthcare- Schools-Online.com, designed to be the only unbiased resource for students seeking an online degree in healthcare.
Healthcare-Schools-Online.com features one-of-a-kind comparison shopping tools that allow prospective students to view a side-by-side comparison of schools, based on their compatibility with criteria that the student has selected. The site aims to be a “one-stop-shop” for the prospective online student by providing news and information on degree programs at every level, financial aid, and school accreditation, as well as current career and salary information as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. A student interested in an online medical assisting program, for example, can view prospective salary figures, read current news stories about the field, search for an online program, and check a school’s accreditation status.
Many sites that claim to match prospective students with an online school offer content and search results weighted heavily by advertising dollars. Recent scrutiny of several for-profit schools regarding questionable recruiting tactics and degree validity further proves that many education providers value their own financial gain over student success.
The University Bound Network recognizes the prospective student’s need for real, honest information and aims to be the ultimate resource in the online education industry. By utilizing the innovative resources available through Healthcare-Schools-Online.com, prospective online students can be matched with the online healthcare schools that will best help them achieve their education and career goals.
