Basic details about this nursing degree program:
This program offered by the University of Phoenix was created to help
nurses gain knowledge of both nursing and healthcare related business
skills in order to keep up with today’s modern health care systems. This
program integrates key skills and coursework from both degree programs
together to ensure students gain the knowledge they will need in order
to both examine and evaluate the current trends and issues that affect
health care. This MSN program was made for nurses who would like to
pursue a more advanced position within the health care environment. It
helps to blend nursing theory and some advanced practice concepts
together to help create a successful candidate for this field. There are
three major areas covered: core, major, and cognate. The core focuses on
the major backbone information needed for the MSN degree. This
includes theory and research. The major includes things such as managing
families, administration, and education. The cognate portion of the
program focuses on MHA content which includes subjects such as finance,
policy, economics, marketing, and planning. Public health, long term health
care, and basics of health care are included. Once complete, graduates
of this program can better identify their specific role within the
health care field and use it to help and influence others.
