Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) / Nursing Informatics

Nursing informatics is a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data and knowledge in nursing practice. A nurse specializing in informatics supports healthcare facilities to maximize efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance the quality of patient care. Nurses completing this program will learn how to:

  • improve access to patient information
  • benchmark, monitor, and measure quality with technology
  • implement innovations that can affect patient outcomes and higher quality care

Core foundational nursing courses = 16 hours plus speciality units, depending on ADN or BSN background.

Classes are held on a monthly, weekend-intensive format.
