American Sentinel University (ASU) announced that it will offer Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree programs with four specialization options to allow students to concentrate in informatics, education, leadership or case management.

“Because there is a wide array of opportunities for nursing professionals-and a demand for trained nurses to fill those opportunities-we have customized our accredited MSN degree programs with several distinct tracks,” said Dr. Catherine Garner, DrPH, RN, FAAN, Dean of Health Professions at American Sentinel University. “These specializations are designed to meet the needs of experienced nurses who want to expand their career options.”

The nursing informatics degree program grooms experienced nurses to manage health information systems critical to today’s healthcare delivery systems. Nurses will develop expertise in clinical and administrative systems, date management, data mining for improvement of patient care and information systems project management.

The nursing education specialization is designed for experienced nurses who wish to pursue an educator role in the clinical environment or to teach in both traditional and non-traditional schools of nursing. The program builds to standards outlined in the National League for Nursing Scope of Practice from Academic Nursing Educators. Special emphasis is placed on reaching diverse learners through a variety of teaching modalities, particularly the use of computer simulation, distance learning, and case based scenarios.

The nursing management and organizational leadership program equips students for careers in nursing administration. It focuses on preparing the staff nurse to assume a broader leadership role within an organization, and then further develop for the nursing executive role.

The nursing case management program trains nurses to assume the role of case manager and builds upon the standards of the Case Management Society of America core curriculum, with additional emphasis on distant client management using technology. Graduates are prepared to assume roles in health care systems, insurance and health maintenance organizations, and specialty case management firms.

“All of our nursing education programs at ASU are practical and project-based,” said Dr. Garner. “What students learn today, they can apply at their workplace tomorrow.”

The MSN program courses are open for enrollment once per month. To learn more, visit
