MSN in Leadership for Trauma Awareness & Resilience

This program allows students to explore their leadership skills recognizing the potential trauma that clients and staff have experienced. Having such an awareness, the nurse leader creates healthy work and care environments such that patients and staff can enhance their resilience. These skills are applicable for the nurse leader in a broad array of nursing roles within the diverse health care environment.

With the increase in traumatic experiences within health care in the past, coupled with the current Covid pandemic climate, students obtain skills and knowledge to respond effectively to patients, peers, and other staff who have been impacted by different traumatic events.

Course work throughout the program involves direct application to their current work setting. Further, students in their final semester implement a quality improvement initiative  to improve this setting. Such assignments provide for understanding their health care context with broader and deeper views, while also transforming the health care environment.

The first four courses in this concentration are taken through the Trauma and Resilience in Healthcare Settings graduate certificate program
