The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) 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, 2022).
