Nurse Educator Program Now Accepting Applications
Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies is now accepting applications for its Nurse Educator program — delivered online through Nursing@Georgetown. This new program will offer graduates the opportunity to impact the education of future nurses at all levels by becoming educators themselves. The inaugural cohort will begin in November.
At a time when nursing students in some parts of the country are unable to attend classes because of a lack of nurse educators, there is a heightened need for professionals in the nursing education specialty. This program is designed to improve health care through the professional development of educators in a variety of settings, while incorporating the role of research into the advancement of high quality nursing education.
The program covers three areas:
- Graduate core courses encompassing interdisciplinary nursing and science requirements that provide content essential to nurse educators;
- Nursing education courses that build on elements of the graduate core courses and provide an opportunity for students to develop their skills as educators; and
- A nursing practicum arranged to match students’ interest with their intended setting of nursing education.
Interested students must have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree to be eligible to apply, along with at least one year of full-time RN clinical experience.
