Leadership and School Nursing Concentration
Overview of School Nurse Program
There are two program pathways to complete an MSN in Leadership and School Nursing. One pathway is for nurses who hold or seek a Level 1 Educational Specialist-School Nurse certificate from Pennsylvania. Our newer pathway offers nurses who have completed certification in non-PA states and want to complete a MSN degree.
The program is consistent with current Pennsylvania state and national school nurse standards and guidelines. It focuses on health care management for school-aged children and is designed to prepare registered nurses to meet the health needs of children of all ages in diverse school settings.
Graduates of a Master of Science in leadership and school nurse concentration will find jobs in the following areas:
- School and camp settings.
- Supervisors or directors in public health, or other agencies.
- 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.
