UPH Establishes Master of Nursing Program to Prepare Nurse Leaders in Academics and Administration

The Faculty of Nursing (FoN) is pleased to announce the launching of a new Master of Nursing program, which is intended to prepare nurses in academic and practice settings for a career in academics or administration. This program was launched to meet the growing demand in Indonesia for highly-skilled nurses who can assume leadership and management positions.

“A master’s in nursing prepares the nurse for opportunities to lead, educate, and manage others, including leading teams and one-on-one coaching,” said FoN dean Grace Solely Houghty, S.Kep, Ners, MBA, M.Kep.

“It provides the necessary knowledge and skills to help the nurse expand their practice with expert knowledge. A master’s in nursing will provide opportunities for a nurse to advance their career and work in a variety of academic and practice settings within the nursing profession.”

The program is unique in that there will be a concentration in education that will help prepare the nurse to teach in academia or to teach in a hospital, clinic, or other practice area. On top of that, FoN has also forged international collaboration with the Indiana Wesleyan University School of Nursing in the US to develop some of the course content and to enhance the proficiency of instructors.

The program also offers an innovative curriculum with superb facilities and exceptional teaching to give students the best learning experience. These include the Multi-Flexible learning (M-Flex) blended learning to accommodate the working nurse, simulation lab, SMART classrooms, and international faculty, just to name a few.

“By preparing nurse leaders as educators and administrators in academic and practice settings, they will make a difference for future nurses in hospitals and communities, as well as impact the healthcare of individuals and communities throughout Indonesia in a variety of practice settings,” said FoN executive dean Christine L. Sommers, PhD, RN, CNE.

“These nurse leaders will be proficient in healthcare management, research, education, and clinical practice. They will be prepared to lead health initiatives, implement evidence-based practices, and participate in policy development, all of which will positively impact community health outcomes.”

The Master of Nursing program will commence in August 2024 with about 30 students in its first intake.
