College of Nursing

The nurse education course can be pursued in conjunction with either the nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist options. The education courses are designed to provide nurses with the curriculum and instruction knowledge and skills necessary to function as faculty or staff development educators.  Courses in curriculum, instruction, and educational evaluation are available to graduate students regardless of their specific track. The education courses are based on graduate level competencies, rather than baccalaureate level competencies.
