The Master of Science in Nursing with an Emphasis in Nursing Education certificate program is designed for MSN-prepared, experienced registered nurses who have a passion for mentoring and teaching future nurses. Students who pursue the nursing education certificate may obtain a faculty position in a traditional college of nursing or in a non-traditional program that relies on online technology as a teaching medium. The nurse educator may also be prepared to practice in acute or chronic care settings as a staff-educator or in a role that is responsible for planning, implementing and evaluating continuing education programs. This nursing education certificate program includes a clinical practicum which affords students the opportunity to refine educational expertise in their selected areas of interest.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing and masters degree in nursing at Grand Canyon University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation).
