The Certificate in Nursing Education is designed to prepare a student already holding a master’s degree in nursing, or enrolled in a graduate nursing program at Shenandoah University, for teaching positions in educational and service settings. Graduate students enrolled at SU must complete the requirements for their degree to be awarded the certificate. The courses in this program will provide students with essential knowledge of the foundations in curriculum and program development; theoretical foundations of the instructional process; and application of assessment, measurement, and evaluation theories in nursing education. Students enrolled in the Health Systems Management graduate track with a focus in nursing education may also apply for the certificate. The certificate will provide the student with the necessary knowledge, skills, values, meanings and experiences to assume the role of a nurse educator. Graduates of the Certificate in Nursing Education program have the required courses for eligibility to take the National League for Nursing Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) examination.
