Nurse Educator, Graduate Certificate

The Nurse Educator Graduate Certificate Program is designed for graduate students, including practicing nurses, who aspire to nurse educator roles. The program will provide students with essential knowledge, skills, and attitudes for contemporary nursing education. Transforming nursing education for creating culturally inclusive learning environments is particularly emphasized. Eligible students will have an unrestricted R.N. license and a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in nursing. Credits earned in this program may be transferable to other graduate nursing programs, and certain courses in it meet requirements of UMass Boston’s BS-to-PhD Program and Clinical Nurse Specialist Graduate Certificate Program. Completing the program will partially fulfill eligibility requirements for nurse educator certification (CNE) by the National League for Nursing (NLN).
