Nursing Administration (MSN)
The Master of Science in Nursing Degree with a major in Nursing Administration prepares nurses to assume the increasingly demanding responsibilities of managing the delivery of care at all levels of health service organizations. Based on sound theoretical foundations, the curriculum focuses on the practical aspects of dealing with numerous forces affecting the provision of health care. Didactic and case-based approaches offer the student multiple opportunities to synthesize the body of nursing knowledge and managerial precepts appropriate in a health care setting. Particular emphasis is placed upon organizational behavior, financial management, and the nurse's ability to impact the public policy development process.
The health care system is evolving rapidly and provides an extremely dynamic venue in which to develop professionally. The health care system of tomorrow will require evident managerial expertise of leaders at all levels of the organization. The Nursing Administration track at Armstrong Atlantic State University prepares nurses who have demonstrated clinical expertise to expand their roles to excel as future health care managers.
A total of 36 semester credit hours is required for completion of the Master of Science Degree in Nursing with a Nursing Administration major.
