The nursing education track provides nurses in the MSN program the opportunity to acquire the skills needed for the teaching and clinical supervision of nursing students. Graduates of this program are prepared to teach and clinically supervise nursing students in the care of specifically identified populations or cognate area. For example, graduate students may study the health care needs of medical surgical clients as their cognate area and then apply the principles learned in the education track to the instruction of student nurses delivering care to this group of clients. Graduate students will take the core courses in the master's program as well as specialized courses focusing on nursing education: curriculum design and development, instructional design, faculty and student roles and the evaluation and supervision of nursing student nurses.
