iStock-871421096_BlogMove into a leadership role in your nursing career with UNC Greensboro’s online Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Nursing Administration. This certificate will prepare you for entry- to mid-level administrative positions in nursing and health care.

A Shorter Path to Management
Because you can earn a certificate more quickly than a master’s, you’ll be on the path to management or an advanced degree in no time. This program requires 15 credit hours, taken fully online and over two to four semesters, beginning in the spring.

Apply credits earned in this certificate program to meet the requirements of a master’s degree program later on, in accordance with the policies set by The Graduate School. With this certificate, students who have already earned the Master of Science in Nursing with a concentration in Nursing Education become eligible to bridge to the Post-Master’s Doctor of Nursing Practice in Executive Leadership.

Skills for Administrative Roles
Through courses and clinical work, the PBC in Nursing Administration helps you develop core skills essential to health care, such as leadership and management processes within the health care system, planning and staffing, and health care accounting practices.

Courses include the following:

  • Organizational Leadership and Management
  • Financial Management in Healthcare
  • The Role of the Nurse Leader in Advanced Quality and Safety
  • Leadership and Management Essentials in Health Care: Theories and Roles

Class sizes are small, limited to 25 students. Clinical opportunities are available at more than 500 agencies, and students may complete some clinical hours in their workplace.
