Through developing management and organizational skills and critical big-picture thinking, the MSN degree prepares you to create change while advancing your career.

The Concentrations

The MSN degree offers two concentrations: nursing educator and nursing administration. Whether your focus is on the management, supervision, and professional development of current nurses, or educating and advising nursing students, you will build on a core of courses designed to examine the complexities and challenges of nursing and health care.

Nursing Administrator

Become the leader and decision maker. The administration track focuses on strengthening your management skills so you can accept middle management roles within a health care institution. While building on the core concern of nursing with patient care, you will learn to support and guide other health care professionals as valuable resources, and to pursue and reach broader administrative goals.

Nursing Educator

The future of health care rests with health care workers. You can help prepare nursing students to take part in a promising future as professional nurses. The education track will prepare you to create and implement curricula to more effectively teach future nurses, whether you are in a classroom or leading a practicum. You will develop the skills necessary to successfully share your own knowledge and clinical experience with student nurses and help them build their own.
