“While nursing chose me, I emphatically chose Elms over a significant number of other institutions. Elms has a culture that is unique in my experience, drawing from the basis of a Catholic private school, and expanding upon that.”

A staff nurse on the ICU/CCU unit at Cooley Dickinson hospital, Oksana Anohina ’12, ’20, chose to specialize in nursing education to better prepare future generations of nurses to the increasingly complex health care environment.

MSN in Nursing Education

This MSN track prepares graduates to educate the next generation of nurses. Specifically, the nursing education track prepares nurses to assume leadership roles as dynamic educators in baccalaureate and associate degree programs, staff development, continuing education, and community education programs.

Students create curricula, plan programs, explore evaluation techniques, and teach with experts. This track includes two education practicums that provide opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills learned as well as obtain graduate-level clinical practice and teaching experience in the area of nursing practice.
