ELM-MSN: Nursing Education
The Entry-Level Master of Science in Nursing (ELM) option in nursing education prepares nurses for teaching roles in a variety of settings, including traditional and nontraditional academic settings, online/distance settings, and clinical and community settings, using cutting-edge technology and teaching-learning methods. The program emphasizes competencies needed for students to complete the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) certification examination, and is aligned with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s The Essentials of Master’s Education in Nursing (AACN, 2011) and the National League for Nursing’s Nurse Educator Competencies (NLN, 2013).
Contact the School of Nursing for specific program availability and locations. Prelicensure coursework must be completed prior to beginning nursing education coursework. Students must have the equivalent of one year of RN clinical experience prior to enrollment in GNRS 663.
