Health Care Law

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program at Xavier University provides nurses with the opportunity to obtain advanced level preparation in nursing science. Graduates of the program are prepared to assume professional leadership roles that encompass educational, consultative, and managerial functions. They are prepared to design and establish delivery services in response to current health care policy changes.

Students who choose the health care law track are provided with advanced study of legal issues surrounding the health care industry. The health care law track is designed for nurses seeking a career in which they would apply their advanced nursing knowledge to legal issues in a variety of settings including risk management and legal nurse consulting.
