Date:1/5/2009

PEORIA, Ill., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- For those looking to go beyond a bachelor's degree in nursing studies, the University of Illinois (UIC) College of Nursing (CON) offers a variety of advanced practice nursing degrees to fit any schedule. Students and nurses hoping to apply for the next semester should be aware that the deadline is February 1, 2009.

"Whether you're interested in a nursing career in public health, acute care, primary healthcare, management or teaching, our college of nursing offers an advanced nursing program to fit your career track," Kathleen Baldwin, PhD, RN, Associate Professor (Public Health Nursing), said. "In addition, our program - now called the Central Illinois Regional Program for UIC - has also continued to set national standards by being the first college to offer the new Executive Leadership Doctorate of Nursing Practice."

One of the First Online Executive Nursing Leadership DNP Programs in the Country

A top research facility (#3 in the nation), the UIC Central Illinois Regional Program (Peoria-Urbana) was also the very first college of nursing to offer a Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program in downstate Illinois. The new executive leadership concentration is going one step beyond.

"The new executive leadership concentration supports the career track of nurse executives and those who want to rise to upper management positions," Kathy Reno, Coordinator for the Executive Leadership DNP Program, said. "It's a unique and different program designed to create top-notch administrators with more extensive financial and systems training, as well as more in-depth administrative skills."

The goal of the Executive Leadership DNP Program is to prepare participants for top healthcare leadership roles in the area of their interest. Experience in some leadership role is strongly recommended prior to application to this concentration. Courses are constructed to build on previous knowledge of finance, change management, organizational theory and other management related knowledge in the participant's current practice.

Other Advanced Practice Nursing Degrees

When it comes to graduate nursing programs, the UIC Central Illinois Regional Program (Peoria-Urbana) College of Nursing sets the pace for others in the nation. Not only the very first College of Nursing to offer a Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program in Central Illinois, the UIC College of Nursing also offers the only joint degree in Master's in Nursing and Master's in Public Health in Illinois (MS-MPH). The DNP program is expected to produce leaders who will affect our healthcare and nursing programs throughout the nation, while the Executive Leadership DNP will take it one step beyond for our nation's top healthcare administrators.

The UIC Central Illinois Regional Program (Peoria-Urbana)

As one of the most respected educational institutions in the world, the UIC College of Nursing presents benefits to students that are not available at many other facilities, including community involvement via faculty or practicum experience as part of their graduate level instruction and more opportunities for future placement.

"UIC is one of the nation's leading institutions and produces some of our nation's best," Baldwin continued. "We also offer the flexibility of affordable online and classroom learning. This enables many to continue in the workplace even as they pursue advanced degrees to obtain additional opportunities in the career track of their choice."
