The Coordinated Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Business Administration

This coordinated Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Business Administration (MSN-MBA) degree option will prepare the nurse executive to ensure excellence in client care services, and also to impact the business environment in which nurses practice. This degree option incorporates content in management, economics, finance, and marketing into a framework for nursing service and health care administration. The coordinated degree can be completed in 57-60 semester credit hours, including prerequisite courses for both Business Administration and Nursing.
