The current critical shortage of nurse educators has resulted in an abundance of career opportunities nationwide, especially in the education of APRNs who fill an important gap as providers of healthcare, educators of emerging nurses at the graduate and advanced practice levels, professional development of healthcare workers, and educators in acute and sub-acute clinical practice.
The Post-Masters Certificate, Nursing Education, is designed to prepare nurses who hold graduate degrees for the roles of the nurse educator in academic, clinical, and professional staff development settings.
The Post-Masters Certificate, Nursing Education is a 14-credit hour program including content and practice in academic nursing education, professional staff development, and clinical nursing education.
