Nurse Educator Post-Graduate Certificate

Post-Graduate Certificate (28 credits)

The Nurse Educator Post-Graduate Certificate program will prepare the MSN graduate for the nurse educator role in academic or staff development settings. The curriculum integrates core masters-level concepts, advanced clinical foundations (assessment, pharmacology, pathophysiology) and education-focused courses. Students develop teaching strategies in the didactic and clinical setting, synthesize teaching/learning theories, and acquire skills in curriculum development. Clinical practicum objectives include the student’s ability to provide didactic and clinical instruction within the academic or clinical settings. As a result, graduates of the Nurse Educator Post-Graduate Certificate are well prepared to assume faculty or clinical instructor positions in schools of nursing or staff development positions in health care institutions.

Upon successful completion of the Post-Graduate Certificate Nurse Educator, the graduate will be eligible to seek certification as a Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) from the National League for Nursing (NLN)
