Post Masters Certificate in Nursing Education
The Post Master’s Certificate in Nursing Education will allow those nurses prepared for clinical roles at the advanced practice level to gain the necessary knowledge for the role of nurse educator in a variety of settings. It can be completed while the advanced practice nurse is employed full time, as it is offered in a convenient weekend format that does not disrupt employment and earning capacity while preparing for a new role. Each course consists of two weekends of intense study with the exception of the teaching practicum.
Course of study is as follows:
- Theory and Process in Nursing Education
- Evaluation and Classroom Methods in Nursing Education
- Curriculum Development and Implementation in Nursing Education
- Nursing Education Practicum
