Nursing Leadership/Health Administration

The Program

The graduate program in Nursing Leadership/Health Administration is designed to prepare baccalaureate nurses for advanced nursing practice in nursing leadership. The curriculum is comprised of 13 courses; the three core courses, the following specialty courses: HP 601, 611, 614, 622, NU 605, 612, 623, 627, an Informatics elective, two electives, and includes 80 hours of fieldwork and 80 hours of clinical mentorship. Graduate courses taken at other accredited institutions may be considered for transfer credit, up to six credits maximum. Students taking the standard two courses per semester will complete the program in two years. It is important that you meet with a faculty member, program director, the graduate chairperson or the Dean of the School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions to develop your personal curriculum plan as the sequencing of courses can impact the time it takes you to complete the program. Courses are offered evenings and weekends to accommodate working nurses.
