Organization & Leadership
Executive Program for Nurses
The Executive Program for Nurses prepares students for leading roles in healthcare organizations, both service and education. These roles are those that advance and implement the practice of nursing and healthcare, operating primarily in one-to-one relationships with clients. Hence, the graduates of this program will have their major impact on nursing and healthcare by influencing other interdisciplinary healthcare providers. The basic aims of current healthcare delivery and healthcare reform mandate a non-partisan approach to the education of nurses and all healthcare administrators and executives. Professionals who practice in today’s healthcare environments and shape tomorrow’s reform must be collaborative interdisciplinarians.
Nursing leadership in scholarship, in research, and in practice is achieved with the attainment of the doctoral degree. Toward this ultimate goal, there are various developmental levels of role preparation, including an exit point of achievement at the level of Master of Arts (48 points). All role preparation in the Executive Program for Nurses is based upon approaches of open inquiry, scholarly pursuit, and the ability to synthesize knowledge from diverse disciplines.
