The Master of Science in Nursing with an Emphasis in Nursing Education 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, master's degree in nursing, and post-graduate APRN certificates at Grand Canyon University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/accreditation).
