Nursing Education

Breiseth Hall 570-408-4234 (T) 570-408-7846 (F) • Email

Nurture the next generation of nurses. Just as critical as the nursing shortage is the shortage of qualified nurse educators to train the next generation. The  Nursing Education program prepares nurse educators and provides a foundation for doctoral study and continuing professional development. The nursing education core includes study in nursing curriculum development, teaching methodologies and strategies, evaluation and role of the nurse educator, as well as clinical practice in education. Students are prepared for careers as nurse educators in practical nursing, associate degree, or bachelor’s degree programs and in-service educators and staff development coordinators in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, public-health, or home-health agencies.


Online format
The 39-credit Nursing Education program is held online*. Required clinical hours are completed in an approved location where students reside.
