Drexel University's online Master's in Nursing Education and Faculty program specifically prepares nurses to work as educators and faculty for nursing programs at all education levels. This degree has a distinct focus on preparing students with the required competencies to successfully pass the new Certified Nursing Educator exam.
With such a severe and critical nursing faculty shortage in the United States and abroad, Drexel's exclusively-online MSN degree provides students with the essential skills and expertise for contemporary nursing educators.

Additionally, the MSN in Nursing Education and Faculty program instructs students how to teach either in the classroom or via online modules and to utilize new and innovative technologies in both environments to educate tomorrow's nurses. Students complete two role practicum experiences in teaching, providing ample opportunity to apply theory to practice.
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.
Students in this program will be required to attend the residency when taking NURS 626 (Practicum I) and NURS 627 (Practicum II). The residency hours will count as part of the required 160 total practicum hours (24 practicum hours earned). The residency is offered bi-annually in June or January. Housing is available for all students who live at a distance.
