MS in Nursing 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 master’s 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. Courses are in a hybrid format with the flexibility to learn most of the material online with periodic in-person sessions.
