Nursing Education

Nurse Educators play a pivotal role in strengthening the nursing workforce, serving as role models and providing the leadership needed to implement evidence-based nursing practice.  Nurse Educators are responsible for designing, implementing, evaluating and revising academic and continuing education programs for nurses.  Nurse Educators are critical players in assuring quality educational experiences, preparing the nursing workforce for the diverse, ever-changing health care environment.  They are the leaders who document the outcomes of educational programs and guide students through the learning process.  Steady job growth is expected in health care for the next several years, and Nurse Educators are in demand.

Curry College's MSN - Nursing Education degree is designed to prepare individuals for the Nurse Educator role in Academic or Staff Development settings.  It reflects the Nurse Educator competencies developed by national organizations.  The curriculum integrates core master's level concepts and education-focused courses (evidence-based teaching and learning principles, teaching strategies, evaluation, etc.).  Students will strengthen their nursing body of knowledge through advanced clinically-focused courses.  They will learn not only what to teach, but how adult learners learn.  As a result, graduates of MSN - Nursing Education are well-prepared to assume faculty or Clinical Instructor positions in Schools of Nursing or Staff Development positions in Health Care settings.  The program culminates in an intensive individualized practicum course where students gain real-world experience to address the challenges of this critical role.

Who Should Apply?

  • Are a registered nurse with an unrestricted Massachusetts RN license
  • Have a bachelor's degree in any field
  • Want to advance your nursing career in an educator role
