Nurse Leader/Executive

Become the nurse leader/executive who inspires, creates, achieves and celebrates the organization's mission. There is a need for nurse leaders to respond to the clinical, organizational and fiscal changes faced by complex health care delivery systems. Today's nurse leaders and executives require knowledge and skills with evolving evidence-based specialty practices, strong communication skills, business acumen and knowledge of financial and human resource management, strategic leadership, advocacy, applied quality improvement, informatics and organizational behavior. Nurse Leader/Executive specialty students participate in hybrid classes supported by 500-hours of specialty clinical experiences.

Career opportunities include nursing leader/executive roles in any type of healthcare or business settings, including hospitals/hospital systems, transitional care facilities, community-based centers/agencies, public health departments, clinics and insurance companies.
