Description The joint MN / MHSA program at Dalhousie University is a 78-credit hour program offering a conceptual background for the increasingly complex managerial tasks that need to be performed in health service organizations and health-related government departments. An effort is made to balance political, social, cultural, medical and psychological approaches to understanding the health care delivery system with those of the management sciences. Graduates require in-depth knowledge of nursing and management, as well as, the ability to apply advanced behavioural and social skills. The program offers opportunities to study in the practice areas of Community Nursing, Nursing Families with Ill Children, Maternal / Child Nursing, Mental Health Nursing, and Adult Nursing. Elective(s) to enhance the practice or research areas may be chosen from a variety of fields. A thesis is required.
