The Executive Program for Nurses with specializations in Administration and Professorial Studies prepares leaders for roles in healthcare organizations -- both service and education. Graduates of this program will have a major impact on nursing and healthcare by influencing other interdisciplinary healthcare providers and learners. Our approach to learning is through open inquiry, scholarly pursuit, and the ability to synthesize knowledge from diverse disciplines.
The Masters of Arts degree offers preparation for nursing and healthcare management positions as well as preparation for roles in nursing education. Two specializations are offered: administration studies, emphasizing the basic skills and concepts of management; and professorial studies, which prepares learners for beginning positions in teaching.
The Accelerated Program at the Ed.D. level is a cohort program that meets one day per week on Fridays. The program consists of six semesters of coursework leading to the Ed.D. degree in addition to satisfactory completion of a doctoral dissertation.
