The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program with emphasis in nursing education is designed for those who have earned a baccalaureate degree in nursing and want to become a nurse educator. The current nursing shortage will continue for the foreseeable future, which makes education in the healthcare field critical area that the healthcare industry must address.
After completing your MSN, you can teach nursing students, helping them develop the skills and expertise necessary to step into nursing leadership roles. The effect that one teacher has can be enormous. With years of experience, you can help produce a significant number of new registered nurses who can help alleviate the pressure on healthcare organizations and provide quality health services to an ever-increasing number of patients.
