With an aging population in our society and the belief that current nurses are expected to retire in the coming decade, the demand for nurse leaders is greater than ever. Regis’ Master of Science in Nursing Leadership offers four tracks designed to prepare you for advanced practice nursing with the skills needed to meet the challenges of healthcare management.
Core coursework and select required courses for each specialty track provide you with a wide range of learning outcomes designed to cultivate leadership and management skills.
Master of Science in Nursing Tracks:
- Nursing Leadership/Clinical Research
- Nursing Leadership/Health Administration
- Nursing Leadership/Health Informatics
- Nursing Leadership/Health Policy
All students in the Nurse Leadership program take a core set of courses, as well as those in their specialty track.
- Nursing Theory
- Concepts in Nursing Leadership
- Economics of Healthcare
The required mentorship allows you to apply classroom learning in a professional setting where you will develop your skills, learn from professionals working in the field, and build your professional network. Recent placements include Partners HealthCare - Brigham and Women's Hospital, Faulkner Hospital, and Joslin Diabetes Center. Recent graduates are currently working at Boston Children’s Hospital, Arbour Health Systems, and the Boston Medical Center.
