Nurse executives require the sound clinical knowledge and business skills necessary to function effectively within today’s integrated healthcare delivery systems. Organizational and financial management perspectives about organizations that provide services through horizontal and vertical integration initiatives will be taught. A base for continued inquiry and contributions to the art and science of nursing is provided, as are the knowledge and skills to exert a leadership role in the formation of healthcare policy. Graduates will be fully prepared to advocate for and direct the provisions of high quality patient care while addressing the realities of costs.
The comprehensive review of Case Management as it relates to patient-centered experience is provided to the student. Knowledge of the continuum of resources available within the healthcare delivery system and in the community is essential. Integration of case management initiatives into the strategic mission of the organization facilitates a collaboration that will produce integrated programs providing the best possible patient care outcomes and ensuring survival and success.
Students completing the curriculum are eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Nursing Administrator Examination, the Commission for Case Management Certification (CCMC) Examination and upon successful completion of all the requirements may apply and sit for the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Board of Governors Examination to advance as a Fellow. This 30-credit program can be completed in 24 months (full-time) or 30 months (part-time) and is available entirely online.
