Master of Science in Nursing / Master of Business Administration – Healthcare (Dual Degree)

Pursue Two Healthcare Degrees with an MSN/MBA Online Program!

Designed for working healthcare professionals and registered nurses, the Master of Science in Nursing/Master of Business Administration Healthcare (MSN/MBA-HC) program is designed to offer the skills and insights you could use to better prepare for leadership opportunities in healthcare.

The MBA–Healthcare offers a business perspective for keeping healthcare organizations going strong, covering financial accounting, health services management, risk management, and more.
