Program Description:

The nurse administrator track is a 36 credit program which prepares a nurse administrator to work in a variety of health care environments. Nurse administrators often manage a team of nurses, or a specific nursing unit or shift. Nurse administrators can interact directly with patients but often are assigned to a more managerial role. A unique feature of the program is the ability to enroll in three MBA courses offered through the Cotsakos College of Business MBA program. The program is designed for either part- or full-time study.

Nurse administrator responsibilities may include:

Upon completion of the theory and practicum course requirements, you would be eligible to apply for the Nurse Executive, Advanced Certification Examination by American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) administrator certification exams: Certified Nurse Manager and Leader (CNML) and Executive Nursing Practice (CENP). The type of certification is based on experience level. The MSN program has been accredited from 2005 to 2015 by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
