Practical Skill Development
Through courses that teach curriculum design, teaching strategies, assessment, the role of a nurse educator and more, students will gather practical skills that can be transferred directly to the role of the nurse educator. By the completion of the program, students will have created a toolbox of teaching strategies that can be adapted to any educational setting and will be prepared to be an active and engaged nurse educator with knowledge that most educators obtain while working in their new or first educator position.
Why Earn a Graduate Certificate?
Being a life-long learner is a vital component of the professional role of a registered nurse. However, because of personal demands it's not always the right time to pursue a graduate degree. Another viable option is to complete a graduate certificate. Completing a graduate certificate allows professional nurses to increase expertise in a way that is often a lower cost and lower time commitment than a formal degree.
Stepping Stone to a Master's Degree
In addition to its immediate benefits, a graduate certificate can also be a stepping stone into a Master's degree. Individuals who complete the professional nurse educator certificate can easily transfer their credits into the Master of Science in Nursing program. The benefit of doing so allows for the familiarity with the instructors and general material that make for an exceptionally smooth graduate education experience.Learn About MSN : Checkerboard 3 - Stepping Stone to a Master's Degree
