Details

The online nurse education certificate is ideal for experienced health care professionals. As a student, you’ll receive training on how to educate future nurses in academia or for nursing staff development.

Our certificate is a nondegree, 15-credit-hour program of study offered to full- or part-time students. The selected courses for study complements the master’s and doctorate degrees in nursing and advanced nursing practice. Students enrolled in a Doctor of Philosophy or Doctor of Nursing Practice program can take the certificate courses as electives.

The curriculum is the foundation for our Master of Science in nursing with a concentration in nursing education degree, which is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education by the American Academy of Colleges of Nursing.

Learn to teach nursing

 

The nurse education in academic and practice settings certificate eases the transition into education and positions students as stronger candidates for future jobs. You’ll take courses on curriculum development and teaching strategies in academic and practice settings. You’ll also learn about the design and delivery of mediated instruction and how to produce and evaluate programs.

As a nurse education certificate student, you’ll need to complete a teaching practicum arranged in your state. During the practicum, you’ll work with a mentor with qualifying credentials in nurse education. The practicum provides students the opportunity to apply knowledge of curriculum, evaluation and teaching principles in academic and/or practice settings. 

How do I become a certified nurse educator?

 

Our nurse education certificate plan of study can guide you toward becoming a certified nurse educator. Once you complete the program, you’re eligible to sit for the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE®) exam from the National League for Nursing. When you pass the exam, you’ll gain a mark of distinction as a certified nurse educator to show your expertise in the role.

Due to legislative regulations, we cannot consider student applications for the Nurse Education in Academic and Practice Settings certificate in some states. Prospective students should check the state authorization website for the most up-to-date information. This program is also not available for prospective students who reside outside of the United States.

Will my nurse education certificate say 'online'?

No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
