Administration

The Department of Nursing offers a 39-credit Master of Science (M.S.) in nursing administration. Graduates are prepared to function in professional leadership positions as staff development or patient educators and managers in the challenging marketplace of healthcare. 

The Master of Science curriculum consists of three parts: core, adult health and illness concentration, and specialty practice in nursing administration. Core courses of 12 credits satisfy the content areas of ethics, human diversity and social issues, health care delivery, and research. The speciality focus includes a 9-credit concentration in adult health and illness. The centerpiece of the curriculum consists of five speciality practice tracks of 18 credits each. A track includes courses to prepare students to assume primary leadership roles as professionals for 21st century healthcare delivery. The administration track requires a capstone scholarly project. The MS program curriculum is designed as a two-year program of study for full-time students and a 3 to 4 year program of study for part-time students. Some courses are offered in a hybrid, online or condensed format.
