The University of Northern Colorado’s School of Nursing offers an ONLINE Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education program to master’s prepared nurses, matriculated master’s nursing students, and matriculated doctoral students who wish to augment their professional studies with advanced coursework in nursing education and academic roles. BSN-prepared nurses interested in taking single courses can do so as Non-Degree students if space is available; please contact the program advisor for more information.
The program includes design, teaching and evaluation of learning and curricula in both practice and academic settings.
The certificate program can be completed without undue interference with personal and professional schedules due to the convenience of online instruction. Four courses are offered and 9-12 credits are required.
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. A Blackboard tutorial is found at http://unco.blackboard.com/ under “need help?”
Further information about UNC online coursework may be found at: http://www.unco.edu/extendedstudies/distance/index.html
**IMPORTANT: Recent changes in federal regulations relating to our ability to deliver online education have uncovered onerous application and fee requirements from several states. As a result, at this time, the University of Northern Colorado is unable to accept applications for online courses or programs from students located in the following states: Arkansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Tennessee.
