Nursing and Public Administration
A dual degree in nursing and public administration is offered for those nurses who desire to integrate knowledge and skills from nursing with the public sector and public policy (MSN/MPA).
The MSN/MPA program is relevant for nurses who seek to improve the quality of healthcare delivery to populations and communities. Graduates are typically employed by or seek employment from government, non-governmental community agencies, voluntary organizations and non-profits. Activities of our graduates typically revolve around: community-based health promotion and disease prevention, seeking health care funding for core community health services, disaster preparedness, economics and management of public health care systems, and policy-making to ensure health care access.
In the MSN/MPA program, nursing courses focus on advanced nursing practice and management. The public administration courses focus on the management of human and material resources, finances and accounting, organizational analysis, statistics, program evaluation, strategic planning and operations, economics and marketing, as well as leadership theory and behavior, law, and the social impacts of management. Capstone courses aid the student in integration of the theory and practical application from coursework.
The MSN/MPA program offers:
- High value: A combination of academic quality, efficiency, and reasonable education cost
- Practicum experiences with leaders and managers with nursing and/or business backgrounds
- Accessible location
- Many course offerings online
- A customized, flexible program plan developed with a consistent faculty adviser
