Online Post-Graduate Nursing Education Certificate
Aurora University’s School of Nursing offers registered nurses with an MSN, DNP or Ph.D. the ability to increase their expertise in nursing education with a Post-Graduate Nursing Education Certificate. The 10 semester hour program provides nurses with additional skills and expanded proficiency needed for a career as a nurse educator. The certificate prepares nurses to take the National League for Nursing Certified Nurse Educator exam.
Program Requirements: Nurses must complete 10 semester hours, including the following courses:
- NUR6180 Theoretical Foundations of Nursing Education
- NUR6181 Curriculum Development and Assessment
- NUR6210 Practicum: Role Concentration—Nursing Education
The certificate program also requires additional practical experience that can be completed in nine months. This statement is misleading because it makes it seem like it is in addition to the three courses listed above.
Admission Requirements: Applicants should hold a current RN license in their state of employment and/or residency and present one letter of recommendation, a current resume or curriculum vitae and an official, sealed transcript denoting the MSN, DNP or Ph.D.
Opportunities: The Post-Graduate Nursing Education Certificate is a valuable resource for nursing professionals to increase their nursing education expertise for a career transition into the education field.
