These programs feature flexible part-time coursework, allowing you to earn your master's degree and advance your health care career. Program prerequisites and courses may be taken as a non-matriculated student in spring and summer semesters with a formal cohort start date each fall. Programs include:
- Health Care Organization Management and Leadership program (MS or Post-MS) - a 30-credit interprofessional, hybrid (a blend on in-person and online classes) program designed for working adults from health care-related professional backgrounds who wish to work in a health care management role. You will work with experienced clinical leaders and take courses providing practical, hands-on experience in leading effective teams, ensuring optional patient outcomes, leading patient safety initiatives, and managing fiscal and human resources. Several national certification programs are available for graduates. Learn more about our HCM program.
- Clinical Nurse Leader program (MS or Post-MS) - Become a leader in your health care organization with the part-time CNL master’s program at the UR School of Nursing. The CNL is a new national nursing role developed to prepare experienced nurses to focus on improving quality and safety outcomes for patients and populations. CNLs work as part of an interprofessional team by communicating, planning, and implementing care directly with other health care professionals and serve as leaders in health care delivery across all settings. Upon completion of this 35-credit hybrid program, graduates may sit for national certification and use the title, CNL. Learn more about our CNL program.
- Nursing Education (MS and Post-MS) - Our 35-credit Nursing Education program prepares practicing nurses for both academic and clinical teaching roles. This hybrid program, designed for working nurses, provides opportunities for students to work with expert teaching faculty across disciplines and practice areas teaching in a variety of clinical and classroom settings. Additional course work in pharmacology, pathophysiology, health assessment, and evidence-based practice rounds out the program and graduates are eligible for national certification.
