I don't even mind the 3P's as part of informatics curriculum. 1) Those courses just make one a better clinician, which is necessary for bridging the gap between IT and providers. 2) It opens the door for a post-Master's NP down the road if one wants to change paths.
But Professional Presence, Translational Research, Organizational Leadership, garbage garbage garbage. Even the policy course is unnecessary, because the knowledge will be outdated by the time one graduates. Wrap all of these up into one general professional practice course to touch on the high-level stuff.
If you're looking to move up into nursing leadership, I guess the MSN is valuable. I think you'll get more traction in the long run with your MBA. I think if you're looking at a CIO type position, the MS in IT Management paired with the MBA might be better as the CIO deals with a lot more moving parts outside of nursing informatics.
Don't get me wrong -- I don't think that the MSN in general is useless. I just think that, in many cases, the programs are poorly thought out. The focus should be, "How will the student actually be able to apply this information in the real world" and not "How many generic courses can we pack in to avoid building new courses".
The latter seems to be the case with this new program at WGU.
As an aside, I've been on several interviews this year for various leadership and management positions, both within and outside of my organization. I even took on an interim unit manager role over the summer before deciding that inpatient management was not for me. In every single one of those interviews, the interviewers were far more impressed that I had a WGU MBA than with the fact that I was pursuing an MSN in Executive Leadership at a well-known local university. Of course, that may have more to do with the fact that the MBA was complete at the time and the MSN was still in progress. I don't know.
