Master of Science in Nursing (MSN): Concentration in Leadership and Management

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) is designed for Registered Nurses who aim to broaden their knowledge and clinical expertise so that they may assume advanced practice, nursing leadership and management roles. At Charisma University, MSN is available for graduates of Bachelor's degree in any field but who have an active RN license. Charisma University offers MSN with concentration in Leadership and Management, thereby enabling students to gain skills and competencies in addressing clinical care, including primary care, critical care, community health, and executive nurse leadership. Charisma University developed its MSN program as a response to the need for better preparation for RNs so that they can become nurse experts in advanced practice, management and leadership in nursing practice and/or patient-centered healthcare delivery. Through the MSN program, Charisma University fully expects that students will be able to broaden their perspectives because they are required to study innovative interdisciplinary approaches in resolving health care issues that they can apply to real-life situations. In turn, they can use this knowledge when they assume leadership and management roles in nursing departments.
