MANSFIELD, PA— The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) has approved the new administration track in the Mansfield University master’s of Nursing (MSN) program.
“This program provides a strong foundation that is based on baccalaureate education,” Janeen Sheehe, chair of the Department of Health Sciences, said. “Completing the program will give nurse managers and administrators the skills they need to make decisions and support staff and patients in the ever-changing health care arena.”
The administration track curriculum is designed around the American Nurses Association's Scope and Standards of Practice for Nurse Administrators. After completion of the program, graduates may sit for the ANA's Certification Examination for Nurse Administrators.
The M.S. in Nursing program at Mansfield is offered online and is designed for professional nurses who seek an advanced nursing degree while maintaining current employment. Students may choose either the educator or leadership/administrator track. Graduates are qualified to teach in nursing education programs and staff development departments within health care agencies, or to manage nursing care delivery services in health care settings.
