Carroll University is now accepting applications for its Master of Science in Nursing degree with a Clinical Nurse Educator focus (MSN-CNE). The program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to inspire the next generation of nurses, whether they are an educator in an academic or clinical setting.
This advanced degree offers tools necessary to develop, implement and evaluate nursing curricula and to ensure individuals are ready to mentor practicing nurses.
The program was created to fit into working nurses’ busy schedules and offers flexibility via:
- Eight-week courses that meet one night per week
- Hybrid delivery with online and in-person courses
- Clinical education that may be completed in the student’s current work setting
- An educational practicum that may be completed with the nursing faculty at the university
“Students will have the advantage of learning in two state-of-the-art modern nursing lab facilities and will be well-equipped to meet the high demand for nurse educators, which will continue as the nationwide nursing shortage grows,” said Dr. Teresa Kaul, APRN-CNP, chair of the department of nursing and clinical associate professor of nursing.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for nurse educators is expected to increase 19 percent through 2024.
