Overview

Saint Xavier University

As Chicago's first Catholic University, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1846, Saint Xavier University (SXU) strives to provide students with an inclusive and rigorous academic experience--one rooted in ethics and designed to cultivate continued personal and professional excellence. Saint Xavier University believes that engaged learning leads to exceptional outcomes. The programs place a strong emphasis on critical thinking and the importance of effective communication. This enhances student development and in turns cultivates graduates that emerge as confident, contributing citizen leaders of an ever-increasingly complex and global community. Students in the online programs play an active role in the SXU community and learn from the same distinguished professors that lead courses for on-campus programs.

Online Programs

The online MSN offers three tracks for taking charge of the design and delivery of superior patient care:

  • Clinical Leadership: Learn to become a clinical leader at the point of care with a focus on care coordination, risk assessment, quality improvement, outcome evaluation, communication and leadership, and the implementation of evidence-based practice. Coursework prepares students for the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) exam. (SXU also offers this track as a stand-alone certificate for nurses who already have an MSN.)
  • Executive Leadership (Nursing Administration): Develop the strategic perspective and critical thinking skills to lead the continuous improvement of processes and patient care in a nursing unit or department. Coursework prepares students for the Nurse Executive, Board Certification (NE-BC) and Nurse Executive, Advanced Certification exams (NEA-BC).
  • Nurse Educator: Develop teaching techniques and learn how to adapt them to different settings--such as public health classes, hospitals, and schools of nursing. Coursework prepares students for the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) exam.
