Master of Science - Nurse Educator Track
Begins every Fall (August)
Who Should Apply?
If you desire a career as a nurse educator, the fully online Nurse Educator Track is designed for you.
The full- or part-time, online master's degree program is designed for nurses with bachelor’s degrees in nursing who are unable to attend traditional, on-campus classes. You are not required to come to campus at any time.
Note: If you already have your master’s degree in nursing, you also may become a qualified nurse educator with the fully online Post-Master’s Certificate program.
IMPORTANT! UND may not be able to accommodate clinical experiences in some states due to specific state board of nursing regulations. Please contact the UND College of Nursing & Professional Disciplines for guidance on this issue.
