Nurse Executive Concentration†

The Master of Science in Nursing Nurse Executive concentration for BSN-prepared registered nurses interested in pursuing leadership positions in a variety of health care settings.

The Nurse Executive concentration prepares students to assume the complex professional leader role in a variety of settings by integrating prior learning with advanced discipline-specific course work and clinical experiences.

The Nurse Executive concentration includes courses, seminars and practicum experiences that incorporate knowledge about the economy of health care, and skills in collaboration, management and leadership in order to impact health care delivery.

Practicum experiences are conducted with preceptors at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, or with an administrator in another health care setting whom the student has identified. Course work may be pursued on a part- or full-time basis.

Graduates of the Nurse Executive concentration may be involved in building teams, leading departments, and in developing and implementing clinical programs that improve patient care delivery.

Upon completion of the required experience, graduates will be eligible to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) exams to become certified in the field.

A post-master’s certificate is available. An individualized curriculum plan will be developed based on a gap analysis of the applicant’s prior course work.
