Leadership and Management Track

Due to overwhelming interest in the EMU MSN leadership and management program, we are no longer accepting applications. We will begin accepting applications for the fall 2015 class beginning February 1, 2015.

Overview

Nursing is rapidly evolving as a profession along with health care in general. Graduates of a master of science in nursing leadership and management program will find jobs in the following areas:

  • Unit managers in hospitals
  • Supervisors or directors in public health, long term care or other agencies
  • Specific roles in institution- such as safety, infection control or patient education
  • College level teaching in nursing at an associate or baccalaureate level. If at the baccalaureate level, you will need to consider a PhD or DNP in the future.
