Nursing

Nursing Services Administration

The nursing administration curriculum is designed to prepare nurse administrators for working in fast-paced health care environments with acute, long-term, and community care orientations.  Nurse administrators are also prepared for interacting in corporate health care business arenas.  Course work includes managing financial resources with a focus on budgeting, productivity, analysis, costing services, forecasting volume, managed care contract negotiation, business plan development, and marketing.  Students work with large databases to learn analysis for outcomes management and performance improvement.  Organizational behavior is incorporated with effective management of human resources, and leadership skills are developed for motivating employees and managing teams.
