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 four 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 track requires students to complete 14 semester hours of core content, 12 semester credit hours in Nurse Education courses, 10 semester hours in advanced practice core courses, a 120 hour teaching practicum, and 6 semester hours of either a thesis or non-thesis option.  This course of study prepares nurses to take the National League for Nursing Certified Nurse Education Examination.
