SHP – GRADUATE PROGRAMS

nursing students

The University of Providence School of Health Professions offers three programs for graduate students – the Master of Science in Infection Prevention and Epidemiology, the Master of Healthcare Administration program and the Master of Science in Nursing Education program.

Master of Science in Infection Prevention and Epidemiology

The University of Providence Master of Science in Infection Prevention and Epidemiology (MSI) program is designed to create leaders and educators in the prevention of infections across the healthcare continuum using epidemiological and infection prevention tools and principles. The MSI program develops students into change agents who will use systems thinking, data, and evidence-based practice to facilitate collaboration that improves patient safety.

A core benefit of this program is the diversity of professional students and the integration of learning across care settings.

Master of Healthcare Administration

The mission of the Master of Healthcare Administration program is to develop transformational leaders to meet the challenges of the constantly changing healthcare environment. The program provides a foundation for practical workplace application that is grounded in theory.

We aspire to nurture accountable leaders who approach challenges analytically, reviewing data and evidence, while integrating ethical, compassionate, cultural, regulatory, and legal considerations in decision-making.  The program highlights intrapersonal understanding and self-development to support cultivating collaboration and leading teams to execute change.

Master of Science in Nursing Education

The University of Providence’s Master of Science in Nursing Education program prepares graduates to utilize the latest evidence, tools and resources for teaching and learning in a variety of academic and clinical settings. The graduate demonstrates the ability to effectively develop, deliver, and evaluate nursing education now and in the future.

Students develop experience advocating for social justice and human dignity, a sense of inquiry and scholarship, a strong optimization of safety, quality and positive outcomes, an innovative spirit and an ability to lead.
