Designed for nurses who have a Master of Science in Nursing, our nationally accredited nurse educator certificate combines clinical expertise with teacher training to prepare you to successfully become a nursing instructor or educator. The nurse educator certification enables you to increase your salary potential by maintaining dual roles as both an educator and a provider of direct patient care.

Those in this role are charged with teaching pre-licensure master’s and doctoral students in a number of settings. Our comprehensive curriculum helps you do this through advanced study in topics like:

  • Pathology
  • Physical assessment and health promotion
  • Pharmacology
  • Principles of teaching
  • Curriculum development

You’ll also complete 420 practicum hours, giving you substantial hands-on training you can immediately apply to your workplace.

The program features weekly lessons, allowing you to find the flexibility you need to work at your own pace and fit your education around your life. You’ll also receive individualized academic attention. We pair you with a nursing faculty advisor who will be available for you throughout the program to offer video and phone meetings. Our small class sizes and commitment to community means you’ll find a sense of community as you work towards advancing your career.

When you graduate, you’ll have the training you need to work in a variety of healthcare settings. Graduates can find career opportunities as faculty in nursing schools, staff development programs, or in continuing education.
