The Nursing Education major is designed to provide a solid theoretical foundation in the art and principles of effective education. It includes a student teaching component as well as courses in curriculum design, adult education and program evaluation. Graduates will become part of the solution to the current nursing shortage as they take jobs in schools and divisions of nursing. However, they will also be prepared to take on educational leadership positions within hospitals, communities and other areas where their skills are needed. Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for certification by the appropriate credentialing body.
