Nursing: Nurse Educator - MS
The Nurse Educator concentration is designed to prepare nurses to successfully assume the advanced nursing role of academic nurse educator or patient and professional development educator across the spectrum of healthcare and educational settings.
Evidence-based course content focuses on principles of the education process, assessment of learning styles, needs and characteristics of diverse learners and appropriate, innovative, creative instructional techniques and evaluation strategies.
Emphasis is on designing dynamic curricula and programs that are flexible and relevant in a challenging and changing environment. Ethical, legal and leadership dimensions of the nurse educator role are critically analyzed. The experiential component provides the opportunity to integrate knowledge and experience to confidently engage in nurse educator practice.
