Master of Science in Nursing with an option in education for the preparation of Nurse Educator

Nurses with a baccalaureate degree in nursing and interested in becoming prepared as clinical faculty with a master degree can do so by attending classes once a month (Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Students must complete 36 units with 16 of those units devoted to core classes that all MSN students must complete and 20 units of education courses for those enrolled in the clinical faculty option. The program is two years in length with December and the summer off. Those who already have a master degree but want to become clinical faculty can do so by completing the option courses and becoming certified. Instruction is provided by qualified faculty (most of whom have a doctoral degree) and in an environment that is supportive of adult learners and their busy lives. All of the programs have accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
