The dual RN to BS/MS in Nursing Organizational Leadership program provides registered nurses the opportunity to complete all of the requirements for both the BS in Nursing and MS in Nursing Organizational Leadership in a shortened amount of time. To accomplish this, several BS level courses will be satisfied through the more advanced MS coursework, which includes all essential content, but with an expanded approach.

The BS/MS in Nursing Organizational Leadership program prepares graduate to become effective team members, and assume positions of leadership that will contribute to the health, education, and social structure of communities. Students learn to:

  • Initiate and maintain effective working relationships

  • Lead change to improve patient outcomes.

  • Promote evidenced-based nursing research and practice.

  • Build and lead collaborative interprofessional healthcare teams.

  • Manage organizations providing care coordination

The program will culminate with a practicum, which will include a clinical placement in a hospital, long term care or community facility.
