Master of Science in Nursing - Master of Healthcare Admin
The MSN/MHA program is designed to provide nurses with a unique blend of
advanced nursing and healthcare related business skills. The program
combines essential elements from both degree programs to provide
students with the knowledge to effectively issues impacting health care.
The MSN program consists of three major areas: the core, the major, and
the cognate. The core incorporates the theory of nursing influence,
influence of nursing research, and advanced practice of nursing. The
major includes advanced course work in nursing: management of families
and aggregates, administration, and education. The cognate is fulfilled
through the MHA program content.
The MHA program focuses on content related to finance, economics,
policy, quality improvement, marketing, and strategic planning. In
addition, students complete course work in concepts related to public
health, long term care and health care informatics. Graduates enhance
their management backgrounds through a curriculum that provides students
with the ability to apply theory to contemporary practice applications.
