The specialty program in nursing helps students transition from clinical careers into leadership roles based on data-driven and evidence-based approaches. By combining with Noodle Partners, an online program manager, the online program will provide students flexible and convenient access to program resources and U-M School of Nursing faculty while tackling challenges faced within the field. 

“Developing this program will allow us to engage many more people to become Michigan nurses, and that is our ultimate goal,” Hurn said in the press release. “We think Michigan nurses are the best, and we want them everywhere.”

Classes for the digital Masters in Nursing in Leadership, Analytics and Innovation will begin in the fall of 2020.
