Nursing / Nurse Leadership in Global Health
The Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) / Nurse Leadership in Global Health Program educates baccalaureate-prepared registered nurses to become executive nurse leaders in direct and indirect roles within complex, interprofessional healthcare systems.
The Midwestern Advantage
Midwestern University's investment in education, faculty, research, facilities, and clinical training translates into our students being "Day One Ready.”
The Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.)/Nurse Leadership in Global Health degree is an 18-month program (6 quarters) of didactic coursework offered in a distance learning format, with a Clinical Immersion/Leadership Experience component scheduled in the last two quarters of the curriculum.
The degree consists of 45 quarter credits and 160 practicum hours with a focus on nursing leadership. The didactic phase emphasizes advanced concepts surrounding global health policy, finance, leadership, evidenced-based practice, research design, biostatistics, and preventive healthcare practices.
MSN graduates are required to demonstrate specific foundational and concentration-related competencies. The didactic curriculum and applied practicum experiences allow each student to demonstrate attainment of the nine MSN Essentials.
According to the American Nursing Association, nurse leaders make a difference by driving positive changes in national and global legislation. MWU's Nurse Leadership in Global Health program can help you accomplish this.
Nurse leader positions are expected to increase by 16% over the next five years. They can earn between $96,880 - $146,870 per year (variance is based on region and/or experience), according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
At Midwestern University, we prioritize research to advance knowledge and offer students enhanced learning opportunities, fostering close collaboration with faculty researchers and peers on innovative projects.
