Drexel University Online’s post-Master's certificate in Nursing Education and Faculty is for practicing nurses who hold an MSN degree and would like to gain expertise in nursing education.
The Post-Master's certificate in Nursing Education & Faculty prepares nurses to work as educators and faculty for nursing programs at all education levels. This degree has a distinct focus on preparing students to successfully pass the new Certified Nursing Educator exam.This program can generally be completed in one year of part-time study. Transcripts will be reviewed and course work will be determined on an individual basis.
With a critical nursing faculty shortage in the United States and abroad, Drexel’s exclusively-online post-Master’s certificate provides students with the essential skills and expertise to be effective nursing educators.
This certificate trains current or prospective nursing educators to teach the nursing practice in the classroom or via online modules—and to utilize new and innovative technologies in both environments. Participants complete two role practicum experiences in teaching, providing ample opportunity to apply theory to practice.
Residency Requirements: Today’s nurse educator must possess essential skills utilizing teaching/learning technologies to enhance learning across all settings. Given the recent emphasis of simulated experiences in academic and hospital settings, Drexel University nursing faculty have incorporated a three-day mandatory on-campus residency into the Nurse Educator and Faculty Role track. This residency builds proficiency in designing and implementing simulated learning experiences and includes hands-on sessions with Standardized Patients, high fidelity simulators, and contemporary teaching/learning technologies used in the educational process.
PMC Nursing Education and Faculty Role students will be required to attend the residency when taking Nurs626/Nurs627 Practicum I and II. The residency hours will count as part of the required 160 total practicum hours (24 practicum hours earned). The residency is offered biannually in June or January. Housing is available for all students who live at a distance.
