MSN - Nurse Educator
- The MSN Nurse Educator program is designed to prepare well-qualified nurses to become well-prepared nursing educators so they may pursue careers in patient education, staff nurse education, pre-licensure nursing education programs in community colleges, and academic nursing.
- We strive to take the myth out of teaching and to approach the teaching-learning process in a systematic, orderly fashion. Program content focuses on the theoretical foundations of nursing education, tests and measurements, cultural diversity, ethics, curriculum development, implementation and evaluation, clinical teaching and evaluation, and strategies needed for teaching any group in any setting. Emphasis is on the teacher-learner process, curriculum development, and course implementation and evaluation in both the classroom and clinical areas.
- The course of study is 38 semester credits. All courses are offered online. Students have both theory and clinical practica coursework.
- The MSN programs at the Florida State University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
- With the classroom and clinical experiences, the graduate from the Nurse Educator program will meet the competencies published by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) and the National League of Nursing (NLN).
- Applications for the MSN Nurse Educator program will be accepted throughout the year and must be received by July 1st for consideration and review for August admission.
- An online Post-master's Nurse Educator Certificate program consisting of 12 SH is offered for those nurses who already hold a MSN degree. Ninety (90) hours of teaching practicum are accrued in the nurse's local community.
