Are you a nurse who is passionate about teaching and learning? Do you love to impart knowledge to your colleagues and help improve patient care through your love of learning? Saint Xavier’s innovative online Nurse Educator certificate program provides you with the opportunity to work toward becoming a Nurse Educator through experiential learning as well as rigorous classroom practice. Adding this component to your registered nurse education can offer you greater career flexibility and the chance to pass on your hard-won knowledge.
The Nurse Educator certificate program covers teaching techniques specific to the nursing context and how to adapt them to different settings—such as public health classes, hospitals, and schools of nursing. You’ll hone your teaching skills by preparing, presenting and evaluating actual classes during a guided practicum, giving you valuable hands-on experience. The curriculum also includes:
In the past, many nurses wishing to enter the field of nurse education had to learn teaching techniques on the job. SXU’s online Nurse Educator program provides you with a mix of classroom learning and hands-on experience to give you the skills and knowledge you need to be an effective instructor from day one.
The online Nurse Educator certificate program is a valuable opportunity for nurses who have a master’s degree in nursing or are currently earning one in SXU’s online MSN program. Nurse practitioners, nurse administrators, and clinical specialists who want to impart their knowledge and expertise will find the program an excellent fit.
The nine-semester-hour program can be completed as part of your MSN studies at Saint Xavier University, or if you already hold an MSN, you can complete it as a stand-alone program.
