Teaching in Nursing

Graduate Certificate

Nursing education is a specialty that draws from nursing and nursing education science, as well as from adult, vocational, and higher-education science.

The IU Online Graduate Certificate in Teaching in Nursing is designed for nurses seeking academic teaching positions and those whose clinical roles include teaching and faculty development. As a student in the program, you gain the knowledge, skills, and expertise needed to envision, design, conduct, and evaluate innovative, evidence-based classroom, and clinical pedagogies. You expand your current nursing knowledge base and develop new knowledge or skills in evidence-based teaching of nursing.

Your IU Online Graduate Certificate in Teaching in Nursing prepares you for a teaching career in such areas as:

  • Nursing schools 
  • Community colleges 
  • Hospitals 
  • Community health agencies 
  • Technical schools 
  • Private industry 

Certificate Requirements

To earn the Graduate Certificate in Teaching in Nursing, you must complete a minimum of 17 credit hours, including a 150-hour supervised teaching practicum.

Requirements are broken down as follows:

  • Teaching in nursing core courses (14 credit hours) 
  • Nursing education practicum (3 credit hours) 

NOTE: For nurses who already hold an MSN degree in another specialty, completion of the certificate program fulfills the educational eligibility requirements for the National League for Nursing Certification for Nurse Educators program.
