As the world advances and health care continues to change, administrative roles demand more complex skill sets than ever before: teamwork, global thinking, multitasking, creativity, flexibility. Led by our experienced faculty, students in this program hone all of these qualities and progress to become leaders in healthcare decision-making. They learn to respond to multiple constituencies’ needs — from patients to physicians — and to work in an interprofessional environment, integrating the latest technology into the strategic planning process. This 34-credit program can be completed in 24 months (full-time) or 30 months (part-time) and is available entirely online.

The curriculum integrates coursework with clinical experiences, ensuring that our graduates are ready to meet the challenges of the reformed healthcare environment. Students study nursing theories and case management, along with financial management and legal issues. The degree requires three clinical internships: managed care and reimbursement (40 hours); managerial (45 hours); and executive (90 hours). The program director personally mentors and advises all students in this program to ensure their individual needs are met.
Our faculty members are the backbone of the College of Nursing. They connect with other professional nurses - both nationally and internationally - to stay at the forefront of nursing practice. They actively conduct research at Seton Hall, all while working with students to help them reach their full potential.
