GCU is a faith-based institution, focused on service and compassion. As such, this online degree can give you the ability to lead your healthcare organization in patient compassion, quality medical care and services. With this dual MBA/MSN graduate program, you’ll build upon your nursing experience and BSN to learn the business side of healthcare. The emphasis in Leadership can substantially boost your career, as you gain the skills to advance into management roles and make strategic decisions in this unique environment. Core curriculum includes classes such as:
- Organizational Development & Change
- Principles of Healthcare Financial Management
This graduate degree is offered 100% online, allowing you the flexibility to learn on your own schedule. It does, however, incorporate a significant practicum. While this program is accredited by CCNE, students should check with their individual state’s board of nursing for required educational standards.
The program is designed for RNs who have bachelor's degrees in a field outside of nursing who want to earn their MBA/MSN dual degree. Instead of requiring these students to earn a BSN degree, they take six courses from our BSN program and then launch into the MBA/Master of Science in Nursing Leadership in Health Care Systems track.
