Demand is growing for nurses with higher levels of education and specialized knowledge for an increasingly complex healthcare system. Chamberlain College of Nursing is launching graduate certificates in nursing education and nursing informatics to prepare nurses to apply for certification in these critical focus areas. With enhanced proficiency in new skills, nurses can expand their scope of practice and make a valuable impact on the delivery of patient care and their careers.
“Chamberlain’s graduate certificates can give nurses the knowledge and education they need to deliver advanced quality care and take on integral roles in the evolution of healthcare,” said Carole Eldridge, DNP, RN, CNE, NEA-BC, director of graduate programs for Chamberlain College of Nursing. “By diversifying a nurse’s skill set, specialty certification can facilitate upward professional mobility and career advancement.”
Registered nurses with Master of Science in Nursing degrees can enroll in Chamberlain’s online Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education or Graduate Certificate in Nursing Informatics, with or without practicums. Practicum is optional for students with practical application experience in their area of study. Chamberlain is now accepting applications for the spring semester, which begins on Jan. 7, 2013.
