Are you a nurse who’s interested in health information technology?
This new graduate program—Master of Nursing and Master of Science in Health Information Science—started Fall 2010. The double-degree option allows you to develop grad level competencies in nursing and health information science. This will provide nursing leaders with the necessary background to work in the expanding field of nursing and health informatics.
You’ll be prepared to lead in:

The option is intended to prepare nursing leaders with a background essential for working in the rapidly expanding field of nursing and health informatics. Graduates will be prepared to take leadership roles in informatics, telehealth, implementation of electronic health care records and other areas of emerging health technology.
