Program Overview

The Post-graduate Certificate Program in Academic Nursing provides access to an unrivaled graduate education specialty concentration designed to foster competency development in the academic nursing role. As graduates of the program, expert nurse clinicians and researchers will be prepared to lead students to think boldly, cultivate nursing education-practice partnerships, and engage in scholarly work to impact teaching and learning in nursing education.

This program offers flexibility to students by offering three online courses (9 graduate credits) geared towards professional development in the areas of teaching strategies, curriculum design and evaluation methods.  Two preceptor-facilitated experiential learning components are incorporated into the curriculum required for certificate completion. Course design affords students opportunities to collaborate with expert academicians as they explore the role of the faculty member in relation to service, teaching, and scholarship expectations.
