The nurse educator concentration is for those nurses who are interested in obtaining advanced knowledge and skill in teaching at the nurse generalist level.
The faculty recognizes the uniqueness of individual students as adult learners and strives to provide flexible opportunities for learning. Students are encouraged to identify a population of interest to focus on throughout the program. Examples of populations include adults with particular illnesses (diabetes, heart disease), symptoms (fatigue, pain, skin integrity), type of care (end-of-life, acute), and age or gender (older adults, women, young adults).
Courses are offered through asynchronous distance education to accommodate full and part-time students. Practicum hours with preceptors will be arranged.
Financial support for master's degree students is available in the form of scholarships, loans, graduate assistantships and other mechanisms. Additional information is available at the college and university Web pages.
