Nursing Administration

At this time we are not accepting applications to the Nursing Administration Program. For further information, please contact Asst. Director for Graduate Student Affairs and Admissions, Joseph Valiakulathil.  



The Master’s program in Nursing Administration prepares students to be effective leaders in contemporary complex healthcare organizations.  Since all advanced practice nurses are called upon to be leaders in their clinical practices and more broadly, for the nursing profession, courses within this program may be taken as electives by nurse practitioner or nurse-midwifery students.



Numerous graduates of this program are presently in leadership positions in hospitals and healthcare organizations throughout New York City and beyond, and graduating students are frequently sought out for prospective leadership roles.



The curriculum incorporates theory, evidence, and current best practices from the areas of nursing, leadership, management, and business to provide students with mastery of the knowledge and skill of leadership.


Practicum Opportunities

In the last year of graduate study, each student has a clinical preceptor who is an expert nurse executive, so students learn the practical know-how of nursing leadership practice and are prepared to take on leadership roles upon graduation. 


Program Outcomes

Students learn how to provide leadership for the practice of nursing and other patient care disciplines and to lead innovative and transformative change within the organization.
