Completion of this concentration prepares students to function in new and innovative ways as nurse educators. Students choosing the Nurse Educator focus will be able to:

• Design methods of teaching, learning and evaluation for nursing education in the classroom, online, and nursing practice/clinical settings.
• Analyze and develop plans of study in nursing based on appropriate curricular principles.
• Integrate caring as a theoretical model into an educational framework.
• Apply the role of nurse educator, demonstrating successful instructional methods in the classroom, online, and nursing practice/clinical settings.
• Develop a direct care focus of nursing practice.

The Nurse Educator concentration requires a minimum of 39 credit hours. Full and part-time programs of study are available for fall and spring entry.

At the completion of the program graduates are eligible to sit for the National League for Nursing’s Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) exam.

Massachusetts has initiated the process to join NC-SARA and are expected to be approved by the end of this year. Massachusetts state authorization restricts activities in internships and supervised academic field experiences. Therefore, any distance learning student in the College of Nursing who will be residing in Massachusetts while participating in their academic program should contact the college before enrolling to assure they are compliant with state authorization rules.
