Master of Science in Nursing in Nursing Education

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) in Nursing Education (NRED) is designed to prepare nurses for educator roles in academic or clinical settings. Students are prepared through courses emphasizing educational theory, curriculum development, teaching strategies, educational assessment, and evaluation.

Students are provided a robust capstone experience to prepare them for entry into the educator role. Registered nurses are prepared through graduate education and clinical experience to deliver an advanced scope of health care practice to individuals of all ages. Emphasis is placed on the collaborative role of the nurse within the integrated health system through health promotion, disease prevention, and management of common acute and chronic illnesses. Upon completion of course requirements, graduates of the MSN-NRED program are eligible to take the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE®) Examination offered by the National League for Nursing.

This program is also approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology with some required visits to Bryan, Texas for clinical skill training and evaluation.
