Choose from two tracks
Many of the nation’s most skilled nursing educators will retire in the next five years. The nursing education track prepares nurses for the role of educator in academic or staff-development settings.
The curriculum integrates core master’s-level concepts, advanced clinical foundations (assessment, pharmacology, pathophysiology) and education-focused courses. The advanced theory and practicum-focused courses provide students a strong foundation in the content areas they will teach, and the education-focused courses provide an exceptional understanding of how to teach.
Just as our nation’s best and most-experienced nursing educators are approaching retirement, so, too, are our hospital’s administrators. The nursing administration track prepares students to serve in a variety of leadership and managerial roles within the health care system.
Students will develop skills in communication, conflict resolution, personnel development, team building, employee management, critical-situation analysis, and financial management. Graduates will be able to analyze health care needs of groups of patients, use resources, and organize and implement the delivery of nursing services to meet the needs they have identified.
