The Certificate in Nursing Education program consists of four theory courses (total of 10 credits) that prepare students for careers in nursing education.  These courses are open to all graduate nursing students and also to nurses with at least a BSN who are interested in taking such coursework for personal enrichment or professional advancement. Please view the teaching methods page for more information on course delivery.

Nursing educators work in a variety of settings, the most common being schools/colleges of nursing or larger health care agencies.  If you are planning a career with an educational focus, or if you just want to expand your options for later in your career, these electives will get you started.  All of the courses are available in distance delivery mode.
