The Nurse Educator Graduate Certificate requires successful completion of three 3-credit graduate-level nurse educator courses. The program also includes an optional 4-credit practicum course designed to give you the opportunity to apply the knowledge you gained in the three required courses.
The curriculum in the 9-credit certificate can help prepare you to teach in a variety of educational and clinical settings, by covering such main topics as:
- nursing education theories and strategies
- assessment and evaluation in nursing education
- curriculum and program development in nursing education
This certificate is designed as a "stand-alone" certificate or can serve as a "step up" to the Nurse Educator option in the Master of Science in Nursing program.
