Lead the way for health literacy.
The need for nurses is growing, but who will train all of these eager health care professionals? The answer is you. With years of experience as a nurse, you’re now ready to share your expertise with aspiring nurses and medical professionals to prepare them the same way that nurse faculty prepared you.
In 2018, U.S. nursing schools turned away 75,029 qualified applicants from college degree programs, with faculty shortage listed as one of the biggest factors, according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. Another 2018 AACN report found that 1,715 faculty vacancies were identified at 872 nursing schools, with an additional 138 faculty positions needed to accommodate student demand. There couldn’t be a better time for you to pursue your career in nursing education.
You chose nursing as your career path, but teaching is your true calling. Put these two passions together with UND’s online Master of Science – Nurse Educator degree, where we’ll teach you how to expertly facilitate learning through curriculum design, teaching, evaluation and advisement. As the only state-sponsored nurse educator program in North Dakota, this online program is designed to prepare you for a faculty position in a nursing education program, planning and delivery for health care staff, or patient education.
