Nurse Education

Master of Science (MSN) Nurse Education

The Nurse Education degree prepares nurses to teach in a variety of settings including the teaching of patients and their families, nursing students, nursing staff and health consumers.  Through a five course sequence, students gain necessary teaching knowledge and skills to prepare them to become nurse educators, a complex role that requires both pedagogical and clinical competency.  The nurse education curriculum requires students to complete 15 semester hours of core content, 15 semester credit hours in Nurse Education specialty courses, 9 semester hours of clinical practice core courses and 6 semester hours of either a thesis or non-thesis option. Two practicum courses are required: classroom and clinical instruction (120 contact hours each) for a total of 240 hours. This course of study prepares nurses to take the National League for Nursing Certified Nurse Education Examination.
