NOTE: The college only admits MSN-Nursing Education students to the spring term.

The MSN-Nursing Education track prepares the graduate to apply principles of education in the role of educator in various patient care settings and in institutions of higher education through completion of a 36-hour curriculum. The course instruction is delivered primarily online allowing students to balance career, family and other responsibilities while advancing their education.

Students will be asked to come to the Bryan-College Station campus for orientation and a limited number of class activities. When taking NURS 653 Advanced Health Assessment, students will be expected to attend two separate on-campus clinical experiences for a total of 45 hours to meet the clinical objectives of this course as set forth by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing for any MSN degree. Each clinical experience will include three full days of activities requiring overnight stays for students at a distance. Students will be responsible for obtaining their own preceptors for two courses taken in the later semesters. More information will be provided at new student orientation.

Students who relocate to another state during the course of their enrollment may be unable to continue due to the regulations which many state boards of nursing impose regarding use of preceptors.

Upon completion of course requirements, graduates of the MSN-ED program are eligible to take the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE®) Examination offered by the National League for Nursing.
