Welcome to the Program in Nursing Education
Starting in Fall 2015, we are taking applications for the Fall 2016 launch of our two new Nursing Education Programs. They include a program leading to a Doctor in Education degree (Ed.D.) and an advanced certificate program. Both programs are entirely online to provide maximum flexibility for busy nurse professionals seeking advanced training in Nursing Education.
Doctor of Education
The Doctor of Education in Nursing Education is designed for nurses with masters degrees who want to become nurse educators in either academic or staff development settings. Although all courses are online, the program fosters deep collaboration among students and faculty to maximize preparation for educator roles and to facilitate efficient progress through the program. The program features a unique collaborative approach to dissertation design and development .
Advanced Certificate Program
The Advanced Certificate Program in Nursing Education is designed for nurses with doctorates who want to maximize their potential to be effective nurse educators. The program consists of five core courses designed to help you to deploy your advanced clinical or research expertise to enhance the education of new nurses and advanced practitioners.
Diabetes Education and Management
The Diabetes Education and Management Programs are interdisciplinary online programs enrolling clinical professionals, including nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, health educators, exercise physiologists, optometrists, and psychologists. The programs include both a Masters Degree and an Advanced Certificate Program. Doctoral students in Nursing Education who would like more clinical expertise in diabetes management may also take courses on Diabetes Education and Management as part of their program.
