Salt Lake City, UT (PressExposure) March 14, 2012 -- Stevens-Henager College has rolled out its Bachelor of Science Completion in Nursing Administration degree with yet another emphasis area.
Practicing registered nurses (RNs) interested in enrolling for this program can now choose an emphasis in Nursing Informatics. The college also offers emphases such as Clinical Nurse Educator, Community Health Nurse, and Nurse Case Manager with this degree program.
The American Nursing Informatics Association defines nursing informatics as a "specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom in nursing practice."
Nursing informatics is a part of health informatics and the objective of this discipline is to apply technology solutions to support and improve nursing practice through better management and communication of data, information, and knowledge.
RNs who have a passion for technology are ideal candidates for this degree program, as it allows them to combine the two fields and work toward improving the quality of nursing care.
As part of their academic training, students are required to take courses that are specific to the field, such as Health Informatics, Applied Health Informatics, and Nursing Informatics. The program also incorporates courses that are part of a typical nursing administration degree.
Since this BS in Nursing Administration degree is designed as a completion program and prepares graduates for supervisory roles as opposed to advanced clinical positions, it does not require completion of any clinical hours.
To be eligible for admission to this program, candidates must have:
1. A valid Registered Nurse license. 2. A high school diploma (or GED® certificate). 3. An appropriate number of college and general education credits.
If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can get the enrollment process started right away, as classes begin every month at Stevens-Henager College. The degree program is available online as well as at the Ogden/West Haven main campus of the college and its satellite in Layton.
