Wagner Launches Nurse Leadership Master of Science

NYU Wagner's innovative new Master of Science in Management-Concentration for Nurse Leadership, which was designed in concert with New York-Presbyterian Hospital, is aimed at improving the quality of nursing management, boosting nurses' job satisfaction, and finding ways to ease the nationwide nurse shortage and reduce turnover. So far, the program, developed by Wagner Professor Anthony Kovner in cooperation with Chief Nursing Officer Wilhelmina Manzano of New York-Presbyterian, includes an enrollment of 28 nurses, including 25 nurses from New York-Presbyterian. Along with Dr. Kovner, Wagner Professor Victor Rodwin is also teaching courses. The hospital is paying the full tuition of each nurse who completes the program and commits to working at the hospital for two years. The program was profiled by health writer Elizabeth Solomont in the New York Sun (click below).
