Master of Science in Nursing – Nurse Educator Concentration
The Nursing Educator (NE) concentration is designed to prepare students to meet established nurse educator competencies.
The program provides a firm foundation in teaching/learning principles, curriculum/program development and evaluation, and methods to evaluate learning. The curriculum prepares graduates to assume the educator role with competence and confidence. The NE concentration prepares graduates for faculty positions at colleges and universities, and also for planning and delivering staff and patient education in health-related settings. The 35-hour curriculum is designed with the working professional nurse in mind and primarily delivered online. There are two required on-campus visits designed to enhance learning, practice hands-on skills, participate in simulation, and for professional networking/socialization.
