MBA/MSN Dual Degree

Two master's programs built to prepare you for career advancement


Earning a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree along with the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) has many significant benefits for nurses whose career goals include higher levels of management, administration, or business. An MBA helps nurses achieve an understanding of core business principles and allows them to come up with comprehensive solutions to complex challenges in the healthcare field. Nurses who earn an MBA will be strongly considered for business and leadership roles in healthcare facilities such as nurse manager, nurse administrator, healthcare manager, Director of Nursing (DON), or Chief Nursing Officer (CNO). Combining your experience in nursing with an MBA puts you in an excellent position for your career in healthcare.

The dual Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Business Administration program is designed for nurses who would like to enhance their business management skills. The student in the MSN/MBA track has several MBA courses waived, thus allowing a faster and seamless completion of the MBA. The program is available with all three nursing tracks:

  • Clinical Leadership -- Clinical leaders are prepared to practice in clinical leadership roles in settings throughout the health care delivery system.
  • Nurse Educators -- Nurse educators are prepared to practice as faculty in academic settings or other educator roles in the healthcare delivery system.
  • Family Nurse Practitioners -- The Family Nurse Practitioner serves as a specialist in the delivery of primary care services to individuals and families in a wide variety of settings.
