New programs prepare students for careers in high-demand fields

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Walden University, one of the leading providers of online degrees, is offering three new degree programs designed to meet increasing demands for qualified professionals in the fields of nursing, instructional design and technology, and management leadership with the addition of its Bachelor of Science in Nursing, B.S. in Instructional Design and Technology, and M.S. in Leadership programs.

"Walden is proud to add these offerings to our growing portfolio of undergraduate and graduate degrees. Adult learners can earn their degrees while balancing work and personal commitments, as they become prepared for an increasingly global economy and job market with growing demand for skilled professionals in leadership roles, instructional design and technology, and nursing," said Jonathan Kaplan, president of Walden University.

M.S. in Leadership

Walden University is offering a new M.S. in Leadership degree program online designed to give students the tools and best practices they need to excel in today's complex organizations. The new program will prepare students across disciplines to lead others and identify innovative solutions to challenges in a variety of professional settings, including the corporate, nonprofit, public, health care and education sectors.

Students can choose from eight specializations: Entrepreneurship, General Management, Human Resources Leadership, Innovation and Technology, Leader Development, Project Management, Self-Designed and Sustainable Futures.

B.S. in Instructional Design and Technology

Demand is high for professionals who can analyze training needs and goals, and then design and develop technology-supported instructional materials for various organizations. To help meet this demand, The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership at Walden University now offers a B.S. in Instructional Design and Technology degree program.

One of the few online degree programs of its kind in the nation, Walden's B.S. in Instructional Design and Technology provides students with the skills and practical hands-on experience to help them succeed in the fields of instructional design and instructional technology. The program offers three concentrations: General Program, Business and Organizational Change, and Human Factors and Interface Design.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Offered through the School of Nursing, Walden University's new Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree completion program is designed for current registered nurses who hold a hospital diploma, an associate degree in nursing, or a bachelor's degree (other than a BSN), and are seeking a BSN to help them achieve career advancement. The BSN program is a demonstration of Walden's commitment to meeting the needs of nurses in a changing field.

An evolving health care industry requires nurses with new skills and specialized training. In fact, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has proposed that nurses should obtain a bachelor's degree as minimal preparation for practice.*
