"The Executive Nurse Leader program has opened many new doors for learning. The professors and students bring a wide range of experiences that are very enriching and promote growth. My journey continues to exceed my expectations as I continue as a student in the PhD program."

The curriculum for the ENL Program is based on the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) Nurse Executive Competencies with the intent of providing innovative and visionary nurse leaders to shape the future of health care delivery and services. The courses address the following competencies: professionalism, communication and relationship management, business skills and principles, and knowledge of the health care environment. Leadership is a thread throughout all courses in the program. Upon completion of the program and based on previous work experience eligibility criteria, graduates are able to seek certification from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) in Nursing Executive practice, Advanced Nursing Executive practice; and from the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) in Executive Nursing Practice, or Nurse Manager and Leader.

Total Units: 33
