Master's in Nursing Education (MSN)

Develop the next generation of nurse leaders

The challenges are great. The rewards are greater.

The MSN in Nursing Education prepares you for a career as a nurse educator in schools of nursing, from the local community college to the undergraduate level at a major university. Hospitals, medical centers, and other healthcare facilities employ nurse educators for ongoing workforce development and patient education.

Our CCNE-accredited MSN program will help you refine the research and evidence-based practice skills you need to develop educational programs and platforms that engage and inspire students and colleagues alike.

You may also find yourself advocating for your profession before your local legislature or in the halls of Congress. Just as important, if promoting excellence across nursing is your passion, you’ll be doing something you love.

As a nurse educator, you’ll act as both mentor and role model to novice and experienced nurses alike – becoming a driving force in improving the training of nurse professionals and improving patient care. Learn more about the important role you can play as a nurse educator!
