The MSN in Nursing Leadership program will admit a new cohort in August 2019. Please contact Ms. Vanessa Guiterrez or Dr. Holly Cassells if you are interested in this program and would like more information.

The Nursing Leadership Track at UIW is designed to prepare nurses for roles in executive and advanced health care leadership. It provides administrative and management theory and skills in order to address organizational issues within complex health care systems and community-based agencies. Students have the opportunity to complete clinical experiences with nurse leaders, developing expertise in financial management, strategic planning, and navigating a range of issues encountered in health care organizations.

The program is offered in a blended fashion alternating face-to-face classes with online work every other week. Classes are scheduled so that students take no more than two courses at any given point in time, and can complete the 31 credit program in 24 months.
