Nursing Education

The Nursing Education specialty prepares nurses for the educator role in academic and clinical settings to deliver didactic and clinical instruction through a variety of teaching, learning and evaluative methods. Nurse Educators teach patients and their families, provide staff development programs, evaluate the effectiveness of educational programs, and instruct nursing students.

Graduates serve as clinical educators in health organizations and faculty members in schools of nursing, sharing knowledge and skills to prepare the next generation of nurses for effective practice.

Paired with faculty mentors throughout the program, students complete applied teaching projects in the Educator specialty courses, including a final student teaching practicum. NRSG 801 Advanced Health Assessment requires four visits to the KUMC campus. All other required courses for the program are offered online.

Stackable Program: To encourage career and academic progression, students who have completed the Health Professions Educator Certificate have special Graduate Studies approval to apply the four certificate courses (NRSG 870, 871, 873, 874) to the master's program degree requirements.
