The DNP/MBA and the MSN/MBA dual degrees equip the BSN or MSN professional with interdisciplinary expertise in nursing, business, and healthcare leadership. At Southern, this means building a wholistic, Christ-centered philosophy for leadership, management, and research in the healthcare arena. You'll also be positioned to influence healthcare policy and the future direction of the nursing field.
To qualify for the dual-degree program, students must be accepted into both the School of Business and School of Nursing. Typically, students focus on completing classes from one degree at a time, though overlap is acceptable if scheduling allows.
Any student wishing to complete clinical experiences outside the State of TN must verify that State is a member of NC-SARA and seek permission from that State Board of Nursing. Clinical placements in some States may not be able to be accommodated due to specific State Board of Nursing regulations.

Applicants who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States are considered international students and must meet additional requirements for admission.

Since international students enrolling in programs offered completely online do not travel to the United States, they are not required to obtain the Form I-20 or F-1 Student Visa, and they do not have to submit the Declaration of Finances.
International students who will be coming to Southern's campus need some additional information about travel documents and living on campus.
