Executive Healthcare Administration (Online)

Admission is currently suspended.

Study in the Executive Healthcare Administration certificate program provides nurses with a master’s degree the opportunity to explore areas in nursing that will further expand their roles within the profession. The program requires completion of the four specialty courses of the Health Systems Administration master’s degree program as well as a 90 hour executive internship with a Chief Nursing Officer preceptor. The capstone project prepares students to perform effectively in a high level management or executive position in a healthcare provider institution. Students who have completed Seton Hall’s Health Systems Administration with Case Management program can earn this certificate upon the completion of the Executive Internship in Health Systems Administration.
