MINNEAPOLIS -- February 5, 2013

Capella University, an accredited online university* that has built its
reputation by providing high-quality online degree programs for working
adults, partnered with the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) to
be the first online university to fully align with the NCHL’s Health
Leadership Competency Model. The learning and career outcomes of Capella’s
students and alumni can be found at www.capellaresults.org.

“As an innovator, Capella University is well along on the journey of
incorporating competency-based learning and assessment into their graduate
health management and doctoral programs,” said Joyce Anne Wainio, vice
president at NCHL. “The NCHL Health Leadership Competency Model serves as the
basis for their work. Capella’s goal is to elevate learner development to meet
the challenges of the evolving healthcare field.”

By integrating the NCHL’s Health Leadership Competency Model, Capella’s Master
of Health Administration and Doctor of Health Administration programs meet the
health care profession’s standards for management and leadership education by
focusing on the real-world leadership abilities that tomorrow’s health care
executives need—and that employers demand.

“Use of the NCHL competency model combines research supported competencies
with practice integration in the Capella curriculum,” said Lonnie Wederski,
PhD, MSN, MBA, RN, director of Capella’s Nursing and Healthcare Administration
programs. “Learners are assured they are gaining the necessary skill and
knowledge required to excel in today's complex healthcare environment.”
