Nursing Education Program

Nursing Education

The Master of Science (MS) in Nursing Education program is designed to prepare registered nurses for educational roles in community, organizational, clinical and academic settings. The 42-credit program of study is designed to be completed in two years (six consecutive semesters) of full-time study.

The program will prepare nurse educators to teach new and experienced nurses. Direct care experiences will prepare students for advance nursing practice nursing care.

The program is aligned with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's Essentials of Nursing Education (AACN, 2021) that encompasses theoretical and scientific foundations, leadership, quality and improvement, translation of scholarship, use of informatics and technology, policy and advocacy, inter-professional collaboration and educational implications for population health.
