Nursing Administration, Leadership & Policy

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Nurse administrators assume leadership roles in managing and coordinating the delivery of nursing and health services across multiple settings and specialty areas, including nurse-managed businesses and clinics. Students may pursue several options: * Nurse Manager for those who choose a depth of knowledge in administration. * Nurse Clinician/Manager for those primarily interested in an area of clinical practice who want nursing administration as the supporting role area. * The MS/MBA joint degree for those with previous clinical experience who want to pursue an advanced degree through the School of Nursing in conjunction with the College of Business Administration. Both degrees are fully accredited by their respective disciplines. * Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies for experienced nurses. Our graduates assume positions as leaders in the health care system and in the field of health care informatics. Health care informatics is the body of knowledge and the processes that help smooth the interface between clinical and administrative systems to improve diagnostics and treatment. It requires both a clinical background and a current knowledge of technology to bring the systems together. Northeastern's is the first program in the northeast to introduce nursing informatics into the curriculum. Advanced roles that graduates may practice include nurse educator, nurse administrator, nurse researcher and nurse policy analyst. Informatics specialists work with offices and health care systems as information system directors, implementation/trainers, project management consultants, or health care technology specialists to develop plans to incorporate technology into the practice.
