Nursing Administration Concentration

Pitt Nursing is no longer accepting applications for admissions to the MSN in Nursing Administration area of concentration, as of February 2016. The profession still needs nurse leaders with training and advanced knowledge in management, quality, safety, and expertise at the point of care. Thus, prospective students are encouraged to consider applying to our master’s degree program in the Clinical Nurse Leader Concentration  , which prepares you to be an effective leader of efforts to coordinate care across the continuum of health care service, improve patient safety, deliver effective and efficient care in a fiscally responsible manner, and to test and implement evidence-based practice innovations.

This area of concentration is designed for experienced nurses who are interested in learning the art and science of leading a clinical discipline and in using those skills to contribute to the future development of the profession. Graduates will be prepared to assume leadership roles at a department or director level. This concentration is unique in that the faculty has extensive experience in this area, and is able to apply theoretical concepts and principles to meet the demands of a challenging environment that is rapidly changing and continually evolving.

The Nursing Administration MSN is also available online. Additional information regarding the online option can be found at http:/
