Herzing University recently announced that it will be expanding its Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) offerings to include an MSN in Nursing Leadership and Administration. The fully online 16-month program is designed for working professional nurses with BSN degrees to gain the knowledge and skills needed for leadership positions like Nurse Manager, Director of Nursing, Chief Nursing Officer, and others.

Students in the program will build on their clinical expertise to learn how to improve an organization’s direct and indirect care outcomes and manage operational duties to achieve business objectives. These skills will prepare nurses for work at hospitals and community-based health delivery systems. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for healthcare executives and administrators is expected to increase by as much as 20 percent through 2026.

Dr. Mary Judith Yoho, system dean of nursing at Herzing University, tells, “Like many other positions in the field, nursing leaders will continue to be in high demand for years to come. We’re proud to live our mission of being a lifelong learning partner that empowers and supports individuals to start, and in this case, advance their careers through an educational pathway we can create with them.”

Enrollment for the online program begins immediately and classes will begin May 7, 2018. To learn more about Herzing University’s new MSN in Nursing Leadership and Administration, visit here.
