Prepare for a transition into nursing and healthcare leadership.

Healthcare continues to face new challenges—like nursing shortages, public health issues, and limited access to quality care. You can start building skills to help confront these challenges as a healthcare leader, and build your career in the process.


In this 4-course, 100% online certificate program designed for working nurses, you’ll complete three required courses in informatics, financial resources, and healthcare quality and safety. You’ll also select a fourth course as an elective—focused on human resources, financial management, or healthcare systems.


At the end, you’ll be prepared to sit for the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) Certified Nurse Manager and Leader (CNML) exam, setting you apart and helping you take the next step forward in your nursing career.
