Education with Population Focus

Female instructor teaching

Preparing educators of future nurses

MSN students in this track are prepared to provide education to students who will care for patients in a variety of settings. The education major meets the need for the nurse educator with a clinical focus area. The major is responsive to students who want to focus exclusively on the education of future generations of nurses, and it is intended for students who want to ensure that the future nurse is well-prepared with critical thinking skills that will enhance health care.

Graduates are eligible for the NLN education certification exam after 2 years of experience.
