The Widener University Doctor of Nursing Practice in Health Systems Leadership responds to the clinical, organizational, and economic challenges incurred by health systems across the nation. Health care leaders require more than clinical expertise and well developed communication skills. There is a need for business savvy, along with a deep knowledge and appreciation for fiscal and human resource management, continuous quality improvement and safety, complex organizational behavior, and strategic leadership competencies.

The DNP in Health Systems Leadership at Widener University builds on your strong nursing foundation and prepares you to advance as a visionary and passionate nurse executive and leader.
