Dual Degree, MSN-MBA (MBNO)
IWU's School of Nursing and DeVoe School of Business have combined efforts to create online MSN/MBA programs that focus on combining business and nursing skills. This unique program is one of the few MSN programs in Indiana that allow students to take all classes online.
Earning the Master of Science in Nursing and MBA as joint degrees compresses the program to 60 credit hours. It includes 30 credits from Nursing and 30 credits from Business and includes a practicum. It is designed to meet the worldwide need for principle-centered nurse practitioners who possess strong fiscal knowledge and skill, as well as prescriptive authority who are capable of autonomous practice.
The curriculum is based on the competencies and standards set by the American Organization of Nursing Executives (AONE). Graduates are prepared to assume leadership/administration roles within a variety of health care settings and are eligible to apply for certification or licensure by nursing administration credentialing bodies. The nurse desiring a strong working knowledge of health care finance will benefit from the MSN/MBA degree.
