Queens University of Charlotte Introduces Online Master of Science in Nursing

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 24, 2013

Recognizing the demand for MSN-prepared nurses to take on leadership roles in clinical care, Queens University of Charlotte is launching an online version of its Master of Science in Nursing. The 38-credit hour program is offered through Queens’ Presbyterian School of Nursing and includes a Clinical Nurse Leader® track. Applications are now being accepted and classes will begin in September 2013.

The curriculum is designed to teach nurses to incorporate findings from direct patient care, data from tests and recommendations from other healthcare professionals into a comprehensive and effective patient care plan as a Clinical Nurse Leader®. Students learn to take full advantage of available technological resources; collaborate with team members; analyze data and evidence-based research; and design, implement and evaluate patient care plans.

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing introduced the Clinical Nurse Leader® role in 2003. The presence of a CNL has been proven to reduce the occurrence of infections, falls, pressure ulcers and readmissions and to improve medication adherence. Those outcomes can help cut costs, something that the healthcare industry values: In 2011, the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office of Nursing Services implemented a plan to employ CNLs in all of its medical facilities by 2016. It’s also an attractive option for nurses who wish to pursue leadership positions but still enjoy working directly with patients.

A Master of Science in Nursing can also be a step toward greater autonomy and professional fulfillment. According to a 2010 report from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration, registered nurses with graduate degrees earn an average of $20,000 more than RNs without them and report the highest rates of feeling “extremely satisfied” at work. In addition, as educational expectations for nurses continue to rise, those who have a master’s degree may be considered more attractive candidates for advancement and employment over those who don’t.

Queens designed the online MSN for nurses’ schedules and finances. Tuition is just $18,012 (not including course materials and fees; subject to change) and the program can be completed within two years. Asynchronous classes allow nurses to complete coursework around their own busy schedules.

“Our online students will be full members of the Queens community, just as our on-campus students are,” said Dr. Tama Morris, Associate Dean, Blair College of Health and the Presbyterian School of Nursing. “Our faculty members will bring their noted commitment to mentorship, engaging instruction and personal support to the online environment. Bringing our MSN program online is an exciting undertaking for us, and it will benefit Queens as much as it will benefit our students.”
