Seton Hall’s M.S.N, H.S.A. program prepares students to successfully perform as executive nurses in today’s healthcare reform environment. Students graduate with the skills in nursing, finance, strategic planning, operations and care delivery to advocate for quality care while addressing the realities of cost. The program provides the comprehensive preparation needed for administrative nursing roles through an annual research day, regular case analysis, field research, interviews and budget creation. Students additionally gain exposure to patient care operations and nursing and non-nursing executives through two internships, one in managed care and reimbursement internship and another in health systems administration. Upon program completion, graduates can sit for the American College of Healthcare Executive (ACHE) Board of Governors Examination to achieve Diplomat Status or the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Nursing Administrator Exam or the Commission for Case Manager Certificate Examination (CCMC).
