The School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership prepares undergraduate and graduate students in nursing, health administration, and community health services for life-long learning, caring service, leadership and global citizenship. The interdisciplinary approach integrates professional nursing, health services management and community health programming. Faculty members bring together comprehensive curricula which focus on current issues in the expanding areas of healthcare. Students in each major develop the skills and abilities essential for a career of leadership in healthcare. The nursing program is accredited at both the baccalaureate (BSN) and master’s (MS in nursing) levels by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The Long Term Care emphasis within Health Services Administration is approved by the Minnesota Board of Examiners for Nursing Home Administrators (BENHA). The RN to BSN baccalaureate nursing completion track is approved by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) for fully online delivery.
