Nurse educators are in greater demand than ever before, and tens of thousands of qualified nursing school applicants are being turned away due to faculty shortages. By getting an MSN with a Clinical Nurse Educator specialization, you can become part of the solution as you learn how to teach students, lead classes, and coordinate much-needed patient education.
What You'll Learn
In our RN to MSN degree completion program, you’ll learn about human development processes in relation to teaching, assessment tools for student instruction, and how to implement educational methods, evaluate clinical resources, and measure outcomes.
You will also prepare for either the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Nursing Professional Development certification or the National League for Nursing’s Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) exam. See sample curriculum here. Find textbooks and materials required for each specific term.
