MSN - Nurse Educator
While a bachelor’s degree may qualify you for many nursing positions, some nursing career paths require a master’s degree. Kaplan University’s Master of Science in Nursing, which is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), allows you to study online and prepare for career advancement in administrative, informatics, faculty, or staff development roles.* Students complete a practicum experience to bridge the classroom content to the practice setting, during which they work closely with a mentor in a selected health care setting. Specializations include executive leader, nurse educator, informatics, adult-gerontology nurse practitioner, and family nurse practitioner.
Focus on developing courses and programs that integrate nursing philosophy. Examine the applications and both the ethical and legal issues related to the use of technology in teaching. Analyze assessment, measurement, and evaluation methods used in nursing education. Prepare for a faculty or educator role in colleges or schools of nursing, continuing education programs, staff development, clinical education, and patient and community education. Explore strategies for developing effective educational experiences.
