What to expect as a ms in nursing education student

35 credits | 60-hour practicum

As a Master of Science in Nursing Education student, you’ll begin the program by taking the first education course designed to prepare nurse educators. As you progress in the program, you will be taking nursing education courses along with other courses that all future nurse practitioners need, for a total of 35 credits in Nursing. 17 of these credits focus on the role of the nurse educator, curriculum design, teaching and learning strategies, evaluation of learning, and informatics in education and healthcare.

The final course in the program is a 60-hour practicum experience in which students will develop, teach, and evaluate courses in both academic and non-academic settings utilizing their newly acquired knowledge. You’ll benefit from the real world experience of our faculty, who are all RNs with years of clinical and teaching expertise.

Acceptance into the program

Acceptance into the graduate program is contingent upon holding a baccalaureate degree in Nursing that included pathophysiology, physical assessment, pharmacology, statistics, and research as part of the degree. And, if not taken, these are to be taken prior to admission.

Be prepared for your future

With a Master of Science in Nursing Education, you’ll be prepared to teach in both academic and healthcare settings. Additionally, you’ll have the option to take the National League of Nursing’s certification exam to become a Certified Nurse Educator.
