Graduates of the program are prepared to assume professional leadership roles that encompass educational, consultative, and managerial functions. They are prepared to design and establish delivery services in response to current health care policy changes.
Students who choose the education concentration are provided with in-depth study of the principles of education to be applied to the education of nurses. Graduates of the education concentration are prepared to teach in health care or educational settings as nurse educators, staff educators, clinical faculty and continuing education providers.
In addition, an integrated dual degree with the School of Education is offered to students enrolled in the education concentration for which the MSN/MEd would enhance career opportunities through the additional study of graduate education courses. See the MSN/MEd page for further information.
