Master of Science in Nursing with Focus in Education (MSN)

Our graduates assume leadership roles in clinical nursing education, academic faculty appointments, and staff development.

As the demand for nursing instructors and clinical educators continues, many nurses consider educator roles. They may be interested in teaching in a school of nursing, working in professional development or focusing on the education of a specific patient/community population.

This master's program in nursing with a focus in education prepares nurses to assume advanced roles as instructors in academic and service settings. Our program focuses on curriculum development and foundational knowledge in theories of teaching and learning, and provides flexible and practical experience in academic and healthcare settings.

Through scholarly projects, creative partnerships with faculty, clinical experiences, and selection of relevant related courses, you have the opportunity to personalize your program of study to meet your individual career goals.

The program is designed for part-time study accommodating various nursing work schedules. The curriculum may be completed in 2-4 years depending upon whether you enroll in one or two courses each session.
