Nursing Leadership and Healthcare Systems (iLEAD)

College of Nursing - Anschutz Medical Campus



An online class is delivered 100% electronically using the internet or other computer-based methods. The teaching is conducted from a remote location through an online course learning management system or other online or electronic tools. Students have access to the teacher and classmates synchronously, asynchronously, or both. Online classes typically are term-based, but some may be offered in a self-paced format.

The online master’s in nursing leadership and administration program, referred to as i-LEAD (innovation in leadership and administration in nursing and health care systems) will prepare advanced practice nurses with the expertise to provide leadership for high quality health care in rural and medically underserved urban areas.
