*This is only an estimate, using general program
pricing. Your price may be higher or lower depending on
your specialization, transfer credits, tuition discounts, and (in
FlexPath) the speed at which you move through the program. Fees,
including application fees and resource kits, are not included in
this estimate. The GuidedPath prices show the tuition you would pay
if you brought in the average number of transfer credits or the
maximum allowed transfer credits. The FlexPath prices show the
tuition you would pay if you brought in an average number of
transfer credits and you moved at the speed of a typical FlexPath
student or as quickly as the fastest FlexPath students (90th
percentile). New or recently revised programs base their estimate on
comparable programs. Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is not
available for FlexPath.
Speak with an enrollment counselor to get a personalized cost estimate for what you can expect to pay.

Our competency-based MSN in Care Coordination program is shaped by
industry leaders to examine the evolution of care coordination, its
relevance in population health, care coordination structure and
leadership, and emerging health care models.
Introduction to Care Coordination
In this course, learners evaluate the historical evolution of care
coordination and its role in nursing practice. Learners analyze
current care coordination trends, such as the paradigm shift to health
promotion and chronic disease management at the community level, as
well as the influence of technology on the development of health care
data collection systems. In particular, learners assess how these
trends and technological advances have driven change in national
health care policy.
|4 quarter credits|
Emerging Health Care Models and Care Coordination
Learners in this course examine how emerging health care models are
incorporated into the larger framework of clinical care oversight.
Learners analyze the role of informatics in nursing care coordination
and the ways in which client information is collected and used to
influence health outcomes. Learners also identify the ways in which
care coordination can support cost efficiency, promote improved health
consumerism, and affect positive health outcomes.
|4 quarter credits|
Structure and Process in Care Coordination
Learners in this course gain and demonstrate knowledge of the various
care coordination components, including client selection criteria,
communication methodologies, clinical team development, assessment
tools, care plan and profile development, cultural considerations,
data structuring for reporting, and clinical efficiency. Learners
examine the responsibilities of the nurse care coordinator to the
client prior to the implementation of the care plan and during the
care coordination process. Learners evaluate successful strategies for
interviewing and organizing information around client health, goal
setting, efficient clinical oversight, technological support, and data
|4 quarter credits|
Leadership in Care Coordination
Learners in this course propose a project for change in a care
coordination setting, aligning care coordination resources with
community health care needs. Learners apply project management best
practices to affect ethical practice and support positive health
outcomes in the delivery of safe, culturally competent care in
compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. In addition,
learners identify ways in which the care coordinator leader supports
collaboration between key stakeholders in the care coordination
|4 quarter credits|
Ethical and Legal Considerations in Care Coordination
In this course, learners examine the care coordination process in
relation to confidentiality and client privacy, management of consents
for health care, client rights in the care coordination process,
terminations of care coordination management, and the importance of
clinical team collaboration and communication. Learners navigate the
process of aligning limited resources with client needs and gain an
understanding of the balance required between cost effectiveness and
conscious stewardship. Throughout the course, learners demonstrate an
understanding of the importance of cultural literacy with regard to
client health care considerations.
