The Professional Program in Nursing received terrific news last Friday (June 8) when the UW System Board of Regents gave final approval to UW-Green Bay’s plans for a new Master of Science in Nursing degree in Leadership and Management in Health Systems. The online, distance-education program could be up and running within a year. Officials say the increasing complexity of health care systems demands that BSN-prepared nurses in leadership roles be fluent in budgeting, regulations, information systems, integrated delivery systems and management of health care delivery networks. Prof. Susan Gallagher-Lepak of Nursing says the idea of an online nursing master’s here surfaced roughly a decade ago, with the focused work of many people — involving research, curriculum, planning, consultation, approvals from appropriate governance bodies and more during the last few years — paying off for campus and community. With the program’s online delivery and its emphasis on leadership/managerial content (as opposed to clinical training) at the master’s level, it appears to fill an under-served niche in Wisconsin, planners say. We’ll have more details in a future issue.
