About this course
The Nursing Education program prepares individuals with essential knowledge and skills to provide health education with a broad scope of delivery. Students complete the core coursework toward the Master of Science in Nursing Degree. In addition, all students receive education theory related to media technology, informatics, distance education, advising/counseling, teaching/learning principles, innovation in education, and program outcomes evaluation.
Students may then specialize in one of four areas: academics, community health education, staff development, or school health education. Practicum experiences are tailored to the individual student's specialty focus and career goals. Graduates possess the knowledge and skills necessary to provide health education appropriate for patient populations, community groups, primary/secondary education, or formal academic programs in both urban and rural settings.
