Post Masters Nurse Educator Certification Program
The program is designed for professional registered nurses who have previously earned a Masters degree with a major in nursing and who now want to become certified as Nurse Educators.
There exists a national and state-wide nursing faculty shortage.
The rewards of being a qualified nurse educator are personal satisfaction of educating future registered nurses, prestige, and contributing to nursing scholarship.
Students in the certificate program will complete the necessary course requirements in this track in order to be eligible to sit for the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) certification exam, offered by the National League of Nursing (NLN) after two years of full-time employment in the academic faculty role. The Graduate Program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education until 2015.
Students in the certificate program will need to complete a minimum of 12 credits.
