If you're a nurse who wants to expand your options by taking on a greater role in the delivery and management of health care, our Master of Science in Nursing/Master of Health Administration dual degree program with a concentration in Gerontology is designed to help you. This program blends advanced nursing curriculum with the business skills needed to make critical decisions in health care organizations, along with additional coursework in Gerontology. The Gerontology academic work can earn you an en-route certificate (the certificate is also available as standalone). Overall, the program covers policy, finance and more. Your first-hand experience as an RN combined with this degree can help you be an effective health care administrator in many organizations.
