We are proud to announce a new MSN program, which will begin in Fall 2019:
Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) with a focus in Executive Nurse Leadership!
Nurse executives require sound clinical knowledge and administrative skills to function effectively as leaders within today’s integrated healthcare delivery systems. The executive nurse leadership track in our MSN program is offered in conjunction with the Department of Health Administration and Human Resources. This track prepares nurse executives to be leaders in the increasingly complex and rapidly changing healthcare climate. The curriculum emphasizes content in organizational and financial management perspectives, as well as the knowledge and skills to exert a leadership role in health care and contribute to the art and science of nursing.
The executive nurse leadership track is a 30-credit Master of Science in Nursing degree program for baccalaureate-prepared nurses. Students are admitted in the fall or spring semester. The program can be completed in 2 years and is offered in a hybrid format, with some courses on line and some on campus.
