The MS in Nursing Administration and Organizational Systems Leadership (NAOSL) program strives to prepare current nurse leaders at the graduate level for nursing and healthcare leadership. This program addresses the increasing demand for system-wide leadership within the healthcare industry. It also addresses the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Master’s Essentials and endeavors to incorporate the principles and values put forth by the American Organization of Nurse Executives, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, and the Essentials of Nurse Manager Orientation.

The NAOSL program requirements include around 200 hours of precepted clinical hours in nursing administration, as well as a thesis or project and oral examination as part of your culminating work. Completing these requirements through participation in the program will significantly impact your preparation for the Executive Nursing Practice (CENP) or Nurse Manager and Leader (CNML) national certification examinations.
