Nurse Education RN to MSN
This program is a blend of the existing Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Nursing programs. The RN/B curriculum will be truncated by several courses whose content will be covered in the Master’s materials. After the third semester in the course of study below, students will be eligible to transfer into the existing Master of Science in Nursing—Nursing Education Track (MS-NEd) concentration, which prepares advanced professional nurses in the nursing role specialty of nursing education. The NEd track addresses the expanding educational needs of the nursing profession. The Nurse Educator may practice in a variety of settings. The Nurse Educator will be prepared to practice in acute or chronic care settings as a staff-educator or in a role that is responsible for planning implementing and evaluating continuing education programs. The Advanced-Professional Nurse Educator will also be prepared to assume a faculty position in a traditional college of nursing or in a non-traditional program that relies on online technology as a teaching medium. Competencies of the Professional Practice Nurse Educator include utilizing assessing educational needs, planning programs to meet those needs, and evaluating the outcomes of their programs. This is accomplished in the context of an evidence-based practice model.
