[Source: PRNewswire] – The Arizona State University College of Nursing & Health Innovation has been selected by the Food and Drug Administration, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), as the educational site for the Center’s Academic Collaboration Program (CACP). This partnership will prepare professionals for careers in regulatory science and health safety and is the first academic partnership that the FDA has formed with a college of nursing and health in the nation.
The academic partnership has enabled the launch of the Master’s Degree in Regulatory Science and Health Safety (RSHS), starting in fall semester 2010.
The U.S. and global bioscience research and medical products industries increasingly require individuals with graduate level degrees who can conduct business in accordance with regulatory requirements. As the result of the explosion of new products every year and increased scrutiny of health products throughout their lifecycle, line staff and managers who can interpret the regulations, verify that they were followed, evaluate research data, and assure the safety and effectiveness of new products are needed to protect the public health.
