Educate Future Health Care Leaders

Nurse educators are responsible for training the next generation of nursing and health care professionals. Help advance the field of nursing by combining your clinical and research skills with your passion for education.


Nurse educators have specialized knowledge and skills for preparing nursing students, practicing nurses, and interprofessional team members to provide quality patient care in a fast-paced and dynamic environment. Nurse educators are needed in academic and clinical settings to facilitate learning that promotes the health of patients, families, communities, and populations.

As a masters student in the Nursing Education track, you will experience:

  • Mentoring and clinical supervision by nursing faculty in a variety of specialties, depending on your specific interest.
  • Preparation for teaching at community colleges, universities, or in clinical practice areas.
  • Online course access, with an opportunity to arrange practicum experiences in your home community.
  • Options for a full-time or part-time program of study.

The Nursing Education track can be completed in as few as five semesters. This is a fully online program with multiple opportunities for faculty and peer interaction to support your learning.
