The nurse educator certificate program, a track within the Masters of Nursing Population Health (MN-PH) graduate nursing program, includes the completion of four theory courses that focus on teaching and learning, with an emphasis on distance friendly educational pedagogy. The program also is open to post-masters students wishing to focus on nursing education. Each course is designed to be primarily web based with some videoconferencing class sessions. Additional practicum experiences can be arranged; the NURS 556 capstone practicum (a requirement for all MN-PH students) also offers opportunities for an educational focus. A certificate will be awarded upon completion of all requirements for the MN degree/education track.
