The MSN Nurse Educator option has been developed as an innovative, collaborative track with the Graduate School of Education in response to national and regional needs for nurse educators. This 36 credit hour, fully online program prepares the graduate to serve as a nurse educator in the academic as well as clinical practice area. Graduates of this option will meet the core competencies for the Nurse Educator as outlined by the National League for Nursing (NLN) and will qualify to apply for national certification.
