    Education

    There is currently a shortage of qualified nurse educators in both academic and clinical settings, so career opportunities for this role are quite strong. Nurse educators combine knowledge and clinical expertise with a passion for teaching and mentoring. They play a critical role in preparing and strengthening the nursing workforce, and providing leadership in implementing evidence-based practice in a rapidly changing healthcare environment. Responsibilities of Nurse educators include designing, implementing, evaluating and revising academic and continuing education programs for nurses.   
             
    The Department of Nursing offers a 39-credit Master of Science (M.S.) in the Nursing Education. Graduates are prepared to function in teaching and leadership positions either as faculty in schools of nursing or as clinical educators in diverse healthcare settings. The curriculum consists of three parts: the core, an adult health and illness concentration, and a concentration in Nursing education. The core courses (11 credits) satisfy the content areas of ethics, human diversity and social issues, health care delivery, and research. The adult health and illness concentration (9 credits) includes Advanced Health Assessment, Pathophysiology, and Pharmacology. The centerpiece for the curriculum consists of five specialty role courses (18 credits) that focus exclusively on Nursing education, and include a 180 hour teaching practicum. The curriculum culminates in the development of a scholarly portfolio. The Nursing Education curriculum is designed as a two year program of study for full-time students and a 3 year program of study for part-time students. Some courses are offered in a hybrid, online or condensed format.
