BRISTOL, Tenn., August 17, 2017 – The Best Master’s Degrees (TBMD) has ranked King
University’s Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) – Administration degree program among
the top 30 online master’s programs in the nation.
“The School of Nursing is honored to receive this national ranking,” said Tracy Slemp,
DNP, FNP-BC, dean of King’s School of Nursing. “We strive to provide a rigorous, quality,
and affordable education to nurses who can lead our regions healthcare agencies. This
ranking is proof King University is among the nation’s best at providing an affordable
education within a Christian learning environment.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of medical and health
services managers is projected to grow by 17% through the year 2024, much faster than
the average for all occupations.
King’s MSN Administration degree focuses on the application of specialized knowledge
and skills in nursing administration to prepare the graduate to be successful in mid-level
and upper-level management positions. Selected clinical, administrative, and research
experiences provide the students with the opportunity to function as a nurse executive.
Students also study concepts and theories related to financial and economic aspects
of health care, health care policy, nursing delivery systems, resource management,
human resources, program evaluation, and organizational leadership with an emphasis
on the interpersonal and visionary attributes of the nurse leader.
The methodology utilized by The Best Masters Degrees included a review of 96 accredited
colleges and universities listed by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES)
College Navigator that offered online master’s in nurse administration or closely
related degree programs. TBMD retained those institutions with national or regional
rankings from major publications like Forbes magazine or U.S. News and World Report
and listed the 30 most affordable. The most recent in-state graduate tuition rates
