Question : What are the unique features of the Nursing Education Certificate?

The certificate is relevant for those new to the field of nursing education and for those who may have may have experience and aspire to update knowledge and skills or transition to new roles and positions in education. The courses are highly relevant to address hot topics and emerging practices in nursing education. The length (9 credit hours) and flexibility (course offerings every spring summer, and fall) increase feasibility and promote completion of the certificate. Learning activities in each course provide for application to specific areas of interest and learning need, as well as to facilitate career planning goals in nursing education. The online format is accessible to rural and working students who must attend from a distance and accommodate employment schedules. Enrollment is encouraged for CU Nursing graduate students, as well as for non-degree students who seek coursework to determine if the Nursing Education Certificate and/or graduate education is a good fit and desirable for future career goals. Course work is interesting and timely, focusing on:

  1. Best practices of teaching and learning, including integration of educational technologies
  2. Nursing education science and opportunities for engagement in educator roles and the scholarship of teaching
  3. Learning assessment and program effectiveness using principles of curriculum design and course development and continuous quality improvement for achievement of desired outcomes.
  4. An optional 4th course, Immersion in Nursing Education Practicum, provides for an intensive, preceptored immersion in nursing education and is offered selectively by permission of the instructor.
