Students work with experienced nursing educators in a variety of settings
Graduates of the Nurse Educator concentration are prepared to function as generalists to teach in a variety of educational roles in nursing practice, including undergraduate nursing education programs, staff development, and patient education programs.
The Master of Science in Nursing degree is a seven semester program with a schedule that accommodates working adults. The 33 credit hour M.S.N. program operates on a classroom cohort model. The classroom component of the program requires the completion of six credit hours each fall, six credit hours each spring, and three credit hours each summer. Classes will be conducted in a four-hour time frame. There is typically a minimum of a one-week break between classes each semester. The program includes a 120-hour (3 semester hour credit) supervised clinical practicum experience. The graduate student works with an experienced preceptor and is immersed in the role of a nursing educator. During the final semester of the plan of study, a student capstone project is completed under the guidance of a graduate faculty advisor. The product of the capstone is a scholarly paper that is in a format to send to a professional nursing journal and a presentation to peers and faculty.
This concentration includes the 8 core courses required by all of our masters programs and three courses that prepare the nurse specifically for the education role. They are:
