Master of Science in Nursing / Nurse Educator
West Coast University

Program Details

The online Nurse Educator degree is an MSN program from West Coast University that allows students to advance their degrees while filling the shortage of nursing faculty found in the United States.  This program is for students seeking to play an active role in the educations of nursing students and colleagues and other health professionals and patients.  You will learn to design, implement, and evaluate educational programs and to use assessment and evaluation strategies while assuring quality educational experiences for your students.  Along the way you will benefit from an online program that still offers one-on-one support from a designated student success advisor while giving you the flexibility a busy professional needs.  In as little as 24 months, while still keeping your current position, you will be prepared to teach others, passing along the knowledge, skills, and experiences that can only be gained by an experienced nurse.
