Post-Master's Certificate in Teaching for Nurses

The Post-Master’s Teaching Certificate in Nursing (PMC) is a 12-credit graduate certificate program designed for nurses who focused on a specialty other than nursing education in previous graduate study and who now have the interest or need for teacher preparation.

About the Program

As the demand for nursing faculty increases, many nurses are considering an educator role. They may be interested in teaching in a school of nursing, working in staff development, or focusing on the education of a specific patient population.

This certificate program is designed to provide students with the in-depth skills and knowledge they need to be competent and confident in nurse educator roles.

Built upon courses within the M.S.N. curriculum, the certificate is designed to provide students with the in-depth skills and knowledge they need to be competent and confident in nurse educator roles. The final course provides mentoring in the educator role in the setting of the student’s choice.
