Franklin University, a leading educator of working adults, is pleased to announce the addition of its new M.S. in Nursing-Nurse Administrator track to its graduate offerings, helping to prepare graduates for leadership roles or nursing education. 

Lead quality improvement initiatives and team management are essential to a healthcare organization’s ability to deliver quality care. With an M.S. in Nursing-Nurse Administrator track, graduates gain the knowledge necessary to provide strategic planning and administrative oversight, while helping to create a clinical environment that supports advanced training and education for nurses.

As healthcare delivery continues to grow more complex, nurses in leadership roles play a critical component in improving patient outcomes, realizing operational efficiencies and preparing for the challenges that lie ahead. Nurse leaders are being sought in all facets of healthcare, from hospitals and clinics, to community and public agencies, to industries like insurance and higher education, in order to lend insight into long-term planning and quality improvement initiatives. 
To fill these leading healthcare roles, program curriculum helps strengthen critical thinking and problem-solving competencies in key areas including administration of healthcare delivery, management of change and interdisciplinary collaboration. 

Franklin’s M.S. in Nursing-Nurse Administrator track is designed to accommodate the schedules of ambitious working RNs. Coursework for Franklin’s 16-month M.S. in Nursing-Nurse Administrator (MSN-ADM) can be completed in 6-week online courses, concluded by a 12-week practicum, on-site in a healthcare setting.

An M.S. in Nursing-Nurse Administrator track opens the door for roles that help healthcare organizations lead and administrate, research and educate, as well as review and implement policies and procedures. Career opportunities for graduates in this track include, but not limited to chief nurse administrator, chief nursing officer, director of nursing, vice president of nursing, healthcare administrator, and nursing faculty member/nurse educator.
