MSN Education Track
Whether you are a new or seasoned registered nurse, IU Kokomo’s MSN Nursing Education Program specializes in convenient in-person experiential education. We are committed to offering 525 hours of wide-ranging teaching opportunities throughout our program – meaning you will graduate with lived teaching experience. IU Kokomo’s MSN faculty will meet you where you are by providing current, relevant, and hands-on nurse educator experiences from the healthcare arena to the university. Our curriculum lays a solid foundation in leadership, evidence-based practices, population health, informatics, quality improvement principles, and advanced practice concepts. As you progress, you will transition into education theory and principles, teaching in nursing, curriculum development, evaluation methodologies, clinical, lab, and simulation-based teaching, healthcare organization-based teaching, and accreditation. This program includes extensive in-person practicum teaching experiences and meets competencies and standards from the NLN Core Competencies of Academic Nurse Educators and the National Association of Healthcare Quality (NAHQ).
The degree track is 41 credit hours completed in six semesters. Courses will take place in person on our campus on Thursdays.
