Graduates of the MSN (Executive Focus) and OHMBA program can work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practice, nonprofit organizations and public sectors. Students take courses from both the MSN and OHMBA program concurrently, allowing assimilation of advanced business management concepts into the nursing administration role.

The program can be completed in eight (8) semesters of full-time study, including summer sessions. Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for Nurse Executive, Advanced certification (ANCC) or the Certification in Executive Nursing Practice (AONE) exams after having held a nursing administration position for at least two (2) years.

The MSN Executive Focus major is offered only to students enrolled in the dual MSN/OHMBA degree program and is not offered as a “stand-alone” major. The combined MSN/OHMBA curriculum meets the Essentials of Master’s Education in Nursing, the American Organization of Nurse Executive Competencies, and the expectations of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Students enrolled in the program will begin in August. Applications are accepted on a rolling admissions schedule.
