Nursing Leadership Graduate Certificate

School of Nursing & Health Sciences

Overview

Capella University's online Certificate in Nursing Leadership helps you stand out among your peers and expand your knowledge in health care management and leadership.

Using an evidence-based approach, you'll explore, define and develop traits that nurse executives need to help ensure health care quality and safety, manage the finance and operations of the health care organization, lead health care innovations, and respond to health care challenges and trends.

You can accelerate your progress toward a master's program by transferring these credits into certain Capella MSN specializations. Nurses who pursue this certificate are often seeking nurse supervisor, nurse manager or other nurse leadership roles.
