Graduate Certificate in Nurse Educator
The Nurse Educator certificate program applicants must have an earned master's degree in nursing from an NLNAC or CCNE accredited program. The certificate may be earned in a minimum of 2 semesters. Internet access is required as all of the coursework is provided online. The concentration of study will focus on preparing nurses to facilitate learning in various environments through the application of knowledge in instructional design, curriculum development, technology utilization, and evaluation of learning. Although the educator courses will be taught online the transitioning into the educator role course will require one-on-one shadowing with experienced nursing faculty in the community in which the student resides.
