Our Graduate Success Stories

I chose to go to Herzing University because I'm a non-traditional student and they provided a twelve-month program to complete my LPN to RN degree.

Birmingham - MSN - Nursing Education Concentration

Recognized as a "Best Online Graduate Nursing Program" for 2014 by U.S. News & World Report!

Download Program Course Sheet

The graduate catalog with courses and descriptions can be found on the downloads page.

Graduates of the Nursing Education concentration are qualified to work in classroom and practice settings to educate, prepare and mentor current and future nurses. They can:

  • Teach in hospitals as Nurse Educators, Staff Development Coordinators, or Clinical Nurse Specialists.
  • Teach in doctor's offices and other healthcare organizations -- wherever patient education is needed.
  • Teach at the university level as an Instructor or Assistant Professor.
  • Work in elementary, middle, and high schools as a School Nurse.

Graduates can also go on to acquire specialized education credentials such as Certified Diabetes Nurse Educator or Board Certified Nurse Educator.

What career opportunities are available for nurse educators?

Nursing schools nationwide are struggling to find new faculty to accommodate the rising number of new students. This shortage provides many job opportunities. It also affords a higher level of job security and provides career options for those who wish to maintain dual roles as educators and direct patient care providers.
