Today’s healthcare climate demands nursing leaders be flexible, creative, and able
to empower others. The Nursing Management and Quality Leadership MS program will ensure
you develop the organizational, business, and people skills needed to meet those demands
and take charge of your healthcare career.
Graduates of the program will work as administrators, managers, and supervisors in
a wide-range of primary care settings and healthcare-focused organizations. As a student,
you'll develop financial skills, explore health policy and advocacy, and learn how
to use data and information to solve large-scale nursing problems.
Our program is designed to accommodate working nurses through a fully-online program and a low-residency program where students take later classes on campus. The program
can be completed in one year or students can build their semesters around their schedules.
If you're ready to take on new challenges and become a leader dedicated to promoting
superior outcomes and safe patient care, D'Youville's experienced and dedicated faculty
