The Masterís of Science Nursing (MSN) in nurse education has been designed to prepare nurse educators for hospital settings. The program provides registered nurses in a range of specialty areas with the skills and knowledge they need to facilitate lifelong learning on their units. By preparing clinicians to become educators, UM offers expert clinicians unique opportunities for career advancement and role expansion.
The 30-credit MSN program is offered on a part-time basis, based on cohort availability. Classes are generally two evenings per week at the Sylvester Cancer Center on the University of Miamiís downtown medical campus. Admission is streamlined and the GRE is not required. The program is lock-step and students must successfully complete a semester before progressing to the next semester.
Graduates will be qualified to sit for one of two national licensure exams, once the required post graduate practice hours are met: the National League for Nursing, Certification for Academic Nurse Educator; or the American Nurses Credentialing Center, Certification for Nursing Professional Development.
