Management and Leadership Certification for Non-profits at Argosy University, Twin Cities

"/argosyuniversityblog/image.axd?picture=%2f2017%2f12%2fTC+Management+Certificate+for+Non-Profits+NEW.png"

Two years ago, over lunch, Jill West, CEO of People Incorporated, and Dr. Karen Gulliver, Dept. Chair, Argosy University, Twin Cities Graduate School of Business and Management, were talking about what kept them both awake at night. Jill’s biggest fear was the same as for every non-profit, large or small. Departure, for any reason, of a senior leader could easily disrupt or derail an organization’s mission, or be the catalyst that vaporizes its vision. Non-profits tend to be mission-delivery focused to the point where they seldom think to groom or develop the next line of organizational leaders. Making matters more difficult was the fact that many managers were clinicians, loathed to take on administrative or senior leadership roles. Hands-on interaction with the core client base is why most people work in non-profits and what keeps their motors running.

What does it take to close that gap, because the subject of many subsequent conversations. Two years later, the two are offering a certificate in Non-profit Leadership and Management that is exceptional in scope and value. Covering the basics of management, participants also learn the fundamentals of leadership, take personal assessments on their strengths & potential, get confidential debriefs, coaching and start a personal leadership development plan. CEU credits are available for all participants.

Benefits of a BSN: The Need for Bachelor’s Level Nursing Degrees in the Healthcare Marketplace

"/argosyuniversityblog/image.axd?picture=%2f2017%2f01%2fBSN+blog+pic.jpg"

As the population of the United States ages, the need for registered nurses continues to grow. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) cites the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ employment projections showing that nursing is one of the top occupations in terms of job growth in the next seven years. It projects that the need for registered nurses will increase by 16% through 2024[1].

AACN adds that a study completed in 2010 titled “The Future of Nursing: Focus on Education ”[2] states the need to increase the number of “baccalaureate-prepared nurses in the workforce to 80%.” It mentions that while there was an increase in the number of nursing students pursuing Bachelor’s level programs in 2013, “this increase is not sufficient to meet the projected demand for nursing services.”

Argosy University offers students the opportunity to fill the need for trained nurses through its Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. The program is offered at the school’s locations in Atlanta, Georgia; Farmer’s Branch, Texas; Denver, Colorado; Honolulu, Hawaii; Phoenix, Arizona; and Eagan, Minnesota.

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree at Argosy University have the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and behaviors needed for professional clinical practice and leadership in healthcare. They’ll also review and apply research findings to support desired nursing outcomes—and can learn to exercise leadership and self-direction in planning, initiating, implementing, and evaluating current and emerging roles in nursing and healthcare systems.

Because nursing is a profession built upon compassion and communication, our nursing students are taught the critical thinking skills needed to deal appropriately with professional decisions and ethical dilemmas. They have the opportunity to learn how to properly advocate for the health care needs of individuals, families, communities, and populations within appropriate professional, ethical, financial, political, and legal contexts. And they’re placed on a path toward lifetime learning—in a profession that is always evolving, it’s essential that nurses continue to grow and build their professional and technical skills.

Successful completion of this program enables graduates to provide comprehensive, culturally competent, and ethical nursing care to individuals, families, and communities. Our graduates are prepared with the nursing skills used to establish care priorities, delegate responsibility to members of the health care team, and make evidence-based decisions to achieve desired patient and organizational outcomes.

Interested in becoming a part of the nursing community? Fill the need for these valuable healthcare providers by starting on your path toward a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Argosy University. Learn more about our program and coursework by visiting our program locations page.
