Master of Nursing

Nurse Educator

This 2- or 4-year hybrid cohort-model graduate program will prepare you for advanced nurse educator roles in academic and clinical settings, continuing education, staff development, clinical and patient education and nurse educator certification. On five days during each quarter, you come to campus and learn with your colleagues in-person, while the rest of the coursework is completed on your schedule online.

Students have the first year in the program to determine a pathway (applicants do not need to have decided on a pathway when applying). View the part-time (4-year) and full-time (2-year) program schedules.

You will be able to:   

  • Integrate theory, technology and research in evidence-based nursing and teaching practice
  • Analyze, facilitate and apply teaching practices in various settings
  • Evaluate teaching processes and outcomes
  • Design inclusive health-related curricula informed by principles of health equity

Graduates will have met the didactic requirement to sit for advanced credentialing as Nurse Educators (CNE) by the National League of Nurses or the American Nurse Credentialing Center.
