For currently licensed nurses, the MS in nursing education concentration prepares you to develop and deliver curriculum to nursing students and to provide direct-care patient education in health-care settings.

This convenient online program features a blend of courses focused on nursing and education, as well as two in-person practicums that provide real-world experience:

  1. A direct care practicum providing advanced-level nursing care to clients in a clinical practice setting

  2. A teaching practicum working with a faculty preceptor in a classroom, clinical environment, skills laboratory, or health education department in a patient care setting

By completing this program, you will advance your career options by:

  • Preparing to become a leader in nursing education who can design and implement educational programs in academia and practice

  • Developing the MS competencies specified by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing

  • Preparing for nursing education certification as a certified nurse educator through the National League for Nursing

Our graduates teach at nursing schools and work in nursing education at health-care facilities.
