Master of Science in Nursing

University of Detroit Mercy

The Master of Science in Nursing with a major in Health Systems Management (HSM) prepares nurses for leadership positions across the complex and dynamic health care continuum. The program emphasizes content from all nurse executive competency domains (AONE, 2011) including communication and relationship building, knowledge of the health care environment, leadership skills, professionalism, and business skills. Students build a systems-thinking approach to patient care, starting with clinical microsystems as a building block. The use of evidence to shape decisions is emphasized through coursework in nursing informatics, decision support, business planning, and outcomes and care transitions management.

Graduates of the HSM program are prepared for a variety of nursing leadership roles including nurse manager, clinical microsystem leader, case manager, quality improvement specialist, and program or project manager. Coupled with appropriate experience, graduates may be prepared for advanced roles in nursing informatics, or as nursing directors or executives. Those with requisite experience may be eligible to seek certification in case management, nursing informatics, or as a nurse executive.
