The School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership was created in 2007, although Nursing, Community Health, and Health Services Administration programs have been offered as core educational majors at Minnesota State University Moorhead for decades. The integration of these programs into a single School represents an inter-disciplinary approach to the teaching of health services.
The faculty members believe that Health is the maximized potential and well-being of a person, community and society. Our goal is prepare students who able to promote optional health along the continuum of life and death. If you seek a professional career in the health care and service profession, any of our programs will prepare you for a fulfilling role.
Our school consists of two departments that offer complementary coursework leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (RN to BSN) or Health Services Administration (BS). A minor in Health Services Administration is available for students with other majors. The Nursing Department also offers a Masters of Science (MS) with a major in nursing degree in Nursing Education, or Nursing Administration and Organizational Systems Leadership. The Master’s in Healthcare Administration (MHA) is offered for health care administrators seeking to move forward in their career.
