Our graduates are skilled in critical thinking, communication, leadership, and possess a solid foundation in business practices to manage both human and fiscal resources at a time when both are in short supply. The program uses a balance of theoretical and experiential tools to ensure that you are able to participate in the development of health care delivery, the shaping of health care policy, and the future of the nursing profession. The Master of Science in Nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the premier accreditor of graduate nursing programs.
The Nursing Administration concentration provides nurse leaders the knowledge and competencies to effectively create work environments that promote professional and collaborative nursing practices and ultimately achieve quality patient care.
