NURS 8300 - Organizational and Systems Leadership for Quality Improvement


(5 cr.) In this course, students consider the importance of developing leadership strategies and competencies specific to healthcare organizations and systems for quality improvement. Students focus on understanding the unique organizational structures and behaviors that impact organizational performance. They explore and discuss the roles and responsibilities of leaders, managers, and administrators within healthcare organizations from the macro (organization-wide) perspective and micro (individual and team performance) perspective. They also examine key organizational theories, principles, and concepts, including mission, vision, values, and strategic and operational planning in relation to achieving the effective and efficient delivery of safe healthcare services. Additionally, students consider the goal of managing outcomes through data analysis as well as through knowledge and skills based on contemporary theory and research, including  motivation, communication, teamwork, leadership style, power, change, quality management, coalition building, negotiation, and conflict management. Applying course concepts, students engage in self-evaluation and consider ways to develop leadership skills and self-awareness.
