New MSN Track: Health Promotion
Opportunity sprouts once again. Mount Saint Mary’s University has launched a new concentration within its Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program. Beginning this spring semester, MSN students can now pursue a concentration in Health Promotion.
The Mount created the track to help graduates meet new goals established by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality — goals to provide better, more affordable healthcare for individuals and their communities.
Coursework will provide graduates with the expertise needed to improve health outcomes and increase the effectiveness of care by focusing on collaboration. Students will learn how to enable different parts of the healthcare industry to work together to improve community healthcare.
The terminal objective of this MSN degree concentration: to graduate masters-prepared nurses equipped to promote healthy living, community engagement and cost-effective healthcare.
The MSN Health Promotion concentration is a 38-unit program that can be completed in as few as six terms. Courses are offered on evenings, weekends and through hybrid online classes. Sample classes include “Healthcare Policy,” “Promotion of Healthy Living,” and “Health Promotion Role.”
Graduates will be equipped for employment opportunities in a variety of positions, including:
- Companies with wellness programs
- Entrepreneurial endeavors (consultant, life coach)
- As a nurse educator or nurse manager
- Outpatient settings (ambulatory clinics, public health departments)
- Distinct population-focused settings (senior citizens, childhood nutrition vulnerable groups, disease-specific settings).
Mount Saint Mary’s Graduate Division currently offers 10 degree options to both women and men of all ages. Courses are taught at the University’s historic Doheny Campus adjacent to downtown Los Angeles. To learn more, visit www.msmu.edu/graduate.
