The University of Northern Colorado’s School of Nursing offers an ONLINE Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education program.
The Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education is designed to provide bachelor's, master's and doctorate-prepared nurses advanced knowledge in nursing education for academic or practice settings. The Certificate consists of a minimum of 9 credit hours of graduate level course work in nursing education for the post Master’s student, and 12 credit hours of graduate level course work for the post baccalaureate student. The program can be tailored to your own needs. The recommended course work includes 1 course in teaching methods, 1 course in teaching/learning theory, and one course in either curriculum or evaluation. The post baccalaureate student will select one additional course. A minimum of 6 credit hours must be in nursing for the post Master’s student, and a minimum of 9 credits must be in nursing for the post baccalaureate student.
Applications for admission are taken on a continuous basis.
Blackboard is the online platform utilized for interactive course delivery. Online courses are not independent study; weekly interaction with faculty and peers is required. The courses follow a traditional 15 week semester format or an 8-week format. A Blackboard tutorial is found at http://unco.blackboard.com/ under “need help?”
