NURS 6200 - The Nurse Administrator: Leading and Managing for Excellence


(4 sem. cr.) The primary goal of leaders in nursing is to achieve excellence in the delivery of patient services. In this course, students work toward gaining the knowledge and skills required to lead and manage in the nursing profession. They examine organizational, managerial, and leadership theories, and they discuss standards of practice for nursing administration. They also examine roles and responsibilities, quality improvements, strategic planning and management, regulations, and the function of information systems. Students observe practical applications in nursing administration through field experiences in practice settings. They also sharpen writing and critical-thinking skills through application-based writing assignments, such as a business plan proposal, journal entries, and a reflection from the perspective of a nurse administrator.
