Nursing Education Certificate
Program Director: Dr. Kathy Ogle
The university has suspended the program and is no longer accepting students in this program.
The overarching objective of the certificate is that students completing the program develop teaching and evaluation skills through a series of courses designed to facilitate the transition of a clinician to an educator in an academic or health care setting. It is an independent certificate program; however, students in the Nursing Education Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program will study with students selecting the Master of Science degree in Nursing, Nursing Education Concentration. Upon completion of this 15-unit program, students may wish to pursue additional graduate study and apply these units to the M.S. degree.
- Apply a wide range of educational theories to a variety of teaching environments in nursing and health professions.
- Integrate technology into nursing education in a variety of settings such as academia, acute care and community.
- Implement the role of the nursing educator in an academic or health service setting.
