Nurse Education Certificate
The School of Nursing offers a Post-Master’s Nurse Education certificate. The program is designed for individuals who have already earned a MSN degree and who are interested in teaching as a faculty member in a pre-licensure program, providing continuing education for clinical staff, or providing patient education.
The didactic content is completely online and will prepare the student in curricular design, educational theory, and evaluation methods.
Students will select a clinical focus and will be required to complete practicum hours for the chosen clinical focus. Clinical hours are also required for the nursing education practicum and will be completed in higher education or staff/development/education setting.
Students completing the nurse education certificate are eligible to sit for the Certified Nurse Educator Certificate examination offered by the National League for Nursing (NLN).
The program is flexible to meet the needs of practicing nurses.
