  • Innovation and Intra/Entrepreneurship in Advanced Nursing Practice Post-Masters Certificate

    Overview

    Drexel University's online Innovation and Intra/Entrepreneurship in Advanced Nursing Practice Post-Masters Certificate is designed for nurses already accredited with an MSN degree who would like to gain expertise in innovative health care management. The program can generally be completed in one year of part-time study.

The program includes a substantial capstone project that demonstrates innovation and pushing the creative boundaries in nursing practice.

    Graduates go on to fill innovative and problem-solving roles as clinicians, educators, administrators and clinical scientists, or choose to move toward the business environment of healthcare.
