MSN: Nurse Educator Program

IV Bag

Learn today, to train the nurses of tomorrow.

Equip yourself with the skills necessary for educating future nurses — not only to deliver effective health care, but to do so with compassion in the Franciscan tradition of joyful service, caring and openness to all.

How does the program work?

  • Less red tape. You won’t need the GRE for admission to this program, and no thesis is required to obtain your master’s degree.
  • Convenient, online courses. All regular coursework outside of clinical and practicums takes place online. Learn at your own time, and your own pace!
  • Clinicals, close to home. We’ll work with you to find clinical preceptors in your own community.
  • Caring, veteran faculty mentors. Who says an online program can’t be personal? Our instructors have decades of teaching and professional experience, and they’ll be with you at every step — never more than an email, phone call or video chat away!

Join a tradition of nursing excellence.
