Learn to Teach in Classroom and Clinical Settings
Are you a nurse who is passionate about teaching and learning? Do you love to impart knowledge to your colleagues and help improve patient care through your love of learning? Do you want to develop marketable skills that can increase your nursing career opportunities?
Saint Xavier’s innovative online Nurse Educator post-master's certificate program provides MSN graduates with the opportunity to work toward becoming a Certified Nurse Educator.
Become a Certified Nurse Educator
The online Nurse Educator certificate program is a valuable opportunity for nurses who have a master’s degree in nursing or are currently earning one in SXU’s online MSN program. Nurse practitioners, nurse administrators, and clinical specialists who want to impart their knowledge and expertise will find the program an excellent fit.
The eleven semester hour program can be started immediately following the completion of your MSN studies, or if you already hold an MSN, you can complete it as a stand-alone program. And because the Nurse Educator certificate curriculum is available 100 percent online, you can earn your certificate whenever and wherever it is most convenient for you.
In addition to the opportunities for nurse educators in traditional settings like hospitals and clinical nurse training facilities, the demand for nurse educators is expected to grow among companies that release new medical devices as the need to train people how to use them becomes more prevalent. This position is sometimes referred to as a medical device educator or RN medical device educator.
Accredited Nursing Program
In 2013 the National League for Nursing (NLN) re-designated the School of Nursing as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education, currently one of only 40 schools in the U.S. to receive this distinction. In addition, Saint Xavier’s school of nursing is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)1.
Other features of the online Nurse Educator certificate program at Saint Xavier University include a highly selective admissions process, an online format to help you balance your study and work schedule, and a diverse student body.
