ABOUT THE ONLINE M.S.N. IN NURSING ADMINISTRATION

Nurses are increasingly important to the operations and administration of health care organizations. An American College of Healthcare Executives survey found that nurses were the most common members of senior leadership teams, with 93% of hospital leadership teams having one or more nurse executives. With an overall shortage of nurses, there is also an increasing demand for nurses with leadership and administration skills.

With an M.S.N. in Nursing Administration, you can make a difference in the health care industry on an administrative level. You will be empowered with the skills you need to manage nursing personnel and services in hospitals or health care agencies. The curriculum includes instruction in principles of health care administration, quality improvement, resource, and financial management, health care law and policy, medical personnel management, and managed care operations.

Bachelor, master, doctorate, and post-graduate APRN certificate programs at the Fran and Earl Ziegler College of Nursing at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
