Nursing Education

The Nursing Education major is directed toward students who display the characteristics of superior ability, heightened motivation and a dedication to learning. Graduate level coursework combines advanced clinical knowledge and expertise in a chosen area of nursing with the nurse educator knowledge and competencies required to assume academic and professional development roles in schools of nursing, health care systems and the community. Innovative coursework and tailored practicum support knowledge acquisition, application and systematic evaluation of evidence-based practice, quality improvement, safety, collaboration, best practices in teaching and learning and professional role development. Upon program completion graduates are eligible to take the National League for Nursing (NLN) Certified Nurse Educator credentialing examination, and, if eligible, the American Nurse Credentialing Certification (ANCC) Nursing Professional Development Board Certification examination.
