Nursing Administration and Management
Nursing Administration and Management is designed to prepare professional nurses for roles in nursing administration across a variety of health care settings. The curriculum integrates masters’ essential areas as described by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (2011), graduate level advanced practice core courses, and administration-focused specialty courses. The program focuses on the development of administrative skills based on theory and evidence based practice. Key concepts include managing human resources, managing financial resources, and managing quality. The program culminates in a project based residency course in which students address a systems level management issue by developing and implementing a summative evidence based solution.
