Program Overview

The Nurse Educator, Master of Science Online Program prepares nurses to practice as faculty or staff development educators in universities, hospital-based schools of nursing, technical schools, and health care facilities.

These leaders document the outcomes of educational programs and guide students through the learning process. Nurse Educators serve as role models and provide leadership needed to implement evidence-based practice.

Graduates of this program will be eligible to take the National League for Nursing Certified Nurse Educator Examination.

Master-prepared nurses may also complete a post graduate certificate in the Nurse Educator concentration.

"The Online Program is designed to compliment students that are part-time or full-time employees. The convenience of the Online curriculum with the well-designed program allowed me to fit the degree into my schedule."
