Chamberlain College Of Nursing Offers New Graduate Certificates In Nursing Education And Informatics

Stocks in this article: DV

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.

Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education

Coursework for the Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education includes education foundations, instructional methods, assessment and evaluation and curriculum development that can be completed in 12 to 15 semester credit hours. If needed, the 100-hour education practicum provides students with the opportunity to further develop their educational skills. Chamberlain’s certificate provides the core competencies identified by the National League for Nursing (NLN) and places a distinct focus on preparing its graduates to take NLN’s Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) exam. A nationwide faculty shortage has heightened demand for CNEs, who can serve as faculty at the vocational, associate or bachelor’s level in traditional and non-traditional settings. These certificates can be ideal for current nurse educators and practicing nurses looking to learn new skills or make a career change to roles including case worker, community health leader and patient educator.
