Master of Science in Nursing - Clinical Nurse Educator
Carroll University's Master of Science in Nursing - Clinical Nurse Educator degree is designed to provide you with the skills and experiences you'll need to step into a rewarding career as a nurse educator. The number of students seeking an education in nursing has never been higher. As a nurse educator, you may work in a classroom, simulation or practice setting, helping to teach and train current and future generations of nurses. The skills you'll gain will help you provide better health education to patients, nursing students, clinical staff nurses and/or other direct-care providers.
According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the demand for nurse educators within schools of nursing will continue to increase as the nursing shortage grows. Nurse educators require advanced degrees that prepare them to develop, implement and evaluate nursing curricula that prepares future nurses for practice.
The mission of the Carroll University Department of Nursing is to educate professional nurses at the baccalaureate and master's level.
