Academics and Curriculum
This 37-credit program includes coursework and authentic teaching experiences which give students cutting edge skills in education technology and opportunities to apply best practices in teaching and learning, all while working with experienced educators.
Students in the MNE program participate in interprofessional coursework through the Warner School of Education and the School of Medicine and Dentistry to gain valuable clinical teaching experiences within health care teams.
You can take one or two courses per semester. Our hybrid-online format is designed to meet the needs of your busy schedule with early evening in-person and online classes.
Student teaching experiences are offered throughout the School of Nursing, Strong Memorial Hospital and our URMC affiliates, as well as other local colleges and departments of nursing.
During your last semester, you will complete a capstone student teaching immersion, working with an experienced clinical or academic educator, learning the multiple roles of the nurse educator and giving you actual experience in teaching and learning based on your career and clinical interests.
