Master of Science in Nursing receives accreditation

January 3rd, 2017

Jan. 3, 2017 — Milwaukee School of Engineering’s School of Nursing has received notification that its Master of Science in Nursing degree has been granted accreditation through Dec. 31, 2021. The M.S. in Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation), which determined that the program met all four accreditation standards and that there are no compliance concerns with respect to the key elements.

MSOE opened its School of Nursing after a merger with the Milwaukee County General Hospital School of Nursing (MCGHSN) in 1995. The program has been growing steadily ever since, and now includes a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, an accelerated second-degree B.S. in Nursing program and the newly accredited M.S. in Nursing: Health Care Systems Management degree.

MSOE’s MSN helps to address the demand for well-educated, business-oriented professional nurses in managerial and leadership roles, which is growing due to the increasing complexity of the health care system. Nurses at mid-management and executive levels and nurse entrepreneurs must manage financial resources and human capital, analyze large data sets, understand complex organizational systems, and ensure quality and safety, all through the lens of nursing practice.

MSOE offers a unique approach to its MSN, which is best described as a graduate degree in nursing blended with business concepts. Many courses are co-taught by business and nursing faculty. For example, the first half of “Statistical Thinking and Data Analytics” is taught by faculty in the Rader School of Business. The second half is taught by faculty in the School of Nursing who will then apply the business learning to a health care setting.

The unique blend of nursing, business and engineering concepts equips graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to function effectively in the health care environment. Courses are available via blended-Internet format, combining the benefits of face-to-face interaction with the convenience of online learning.

MSOE is an independent, non-profit university with about 2,900 students that was founded in 1903. MSOE offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering, business and nursing. The university has a national academic reputation; longstanding ties to business and industry; dedicated professors with real-world experience; a 97% placement rate; and the highest ROI and average starting salaries of any Wisconsin university according to PayScale Inc. MSOE graduates are well-rounded, technologically experienced and highly productive professionals and leaders.
