Best school to get online bacherlor's in RHIA besides WGU? - whichschool

Posted: Jul 25, 2013

Which school (that offers the program online) is the best to get an RHIA besides Western Governor's University? I'm not interested in going there.

Do you have any college yet? - sm

The programs are all very much the same. They have to include the same material required for CAHIIM accreditation.

If you have no college at all, you should start in an HIT program at a 2-year community college. With that, you can at least get the RHIT and start working sooner.

San Juan College in Farmington, NM, is very inexpensive, so try that.

Avoid for-profits. You do not want to spend 30 or 40k on this.

Just curious about why WGU doesn't appeal to you. Informatics might seem intimidating, but that is the way HIM is going.

I have some college, but not very much. I looked over the WGU website, and it's just not the school for me.

Fair enough - sm

If your reasoning is that you want to sit in lectures and have that "college experience," good luck! The majority of programs have their classes online, with little to no instructor and even less student interaction. They are not "more structured," either.

If that is what you are looking for, check the programs out very carefully.
