A New Graduate-Level Nursing Program -- The School of Nursing announces the graduate-level Nursing Care and Health Systems Specialist program. The new program aims to provide nurses with multiple career options and prepare them to practice as health systems specialists. The curriculum is based on results of an assessment of the health care environment that included input from nurse employers. The program offers three concentrations: patient care management, where students graduate with expertise in the care management of a selected population; health system management, where students graduate with expertise in administering nursing and patient care services; or a combination of both.

To learn more about the new graduate program or to meet with a faculty mentor to identify and develop educational and professional goals, call 410-955-7548 or e-mail
