Nurse Educators Program


The purpose of the Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) for nurse educators is to facilitate career preparation in a Christian liberal arts setting at the graduate level of nursing practice, thus enabling experienced nurses to develop skills for teaching positions in schools of nursing, staff development, and patient education. The graduate will be able to integrate concepts from the practice of nursing, nursing theory, nursing research, and professional role development in the educational setting. Knowledge of information processes, educational pedagogy, curriculum development, and evaluation processes will be synthesized in the classroom and clinical setting to assist students and/or patients to meet educational objectives through innovative teaching learning strategies. The nurse educator curriculum builds on knowledge and competencies of baccalaureate education and experience as a practicing nurse. The MSN graduate is expected to demonstrate respect for life, a loving concern for individuals, and an appreciation for ongoing education in nursing. The MSN graduate has a foundation for doctoral education in nursing.
