The Hariri School of Nursing (HSON) offers a one-year online Diploma in Nursing Administration and Management.
The program is very convenient for working nurses who desire to enhance their administrative skills to possibly obtain a nursing management position in hospitals or primary health care settings.
This education opportunity will help you gain a “stand-alone” Graduate Diploma or can serve as a "step up" to a Master of Science in Nursing Administration at HSON.
Offered fully online, it will support the unique needs of working nurses, who wants to advance their career while continuing to work full time.
