Program of Study

Nursing education courses have been designed to merge knowledge of the role of nursing faculty with the role nursing programs play in higher education. Courses will have a theoretical foundation, along with a research underpinning so that best practices in the didactic and clinical practice areas will be taught, used, and tested. EdD students will learn how to actively engage their students in the learning process and how to be facilitators of learning, not just givers of knowledge.
