Our Masters of Science in Nursing with a concentration in Nursing Education (MSN/NED) prepares you to take on leadership and faculty roles in a variety of educational settings. This CCNE accredited program covers key areas of study including the role of the graduate nurse in research processes, how to facilitate engaged learning and curriculum design.

Our curriculum is designed to align with leading industry organizations like the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN®), American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN). And when you complete the MSN/Nurse Education program you’ll be prepared to sit for The National League of Nursing's Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) exam.

You can work toward your MSN/NED by taking one class at a time. This allows you to keep moving toward your goal in a way that works for busy nurses. We also help RN’s with bachelor degrees in unrelated fields earn their MSN more quickly with our Nursing Bridge program.
