For nurses who plan to teach and wish to obtain additional expertise in teaching-learning principles and practice, this curriculum is applicable to both academic and clinical settings and includes didactic and practical experiences in contemporary teaching strategies, curriculum design, and program evaluation practices.
For nurses who seek to become expert clinicians and take an active hand in improving health care delivery systems, this curriculum will focus on the prevention or resolution of illness and treatment of disease, injury and disability, while preparing you to sit for the national certification exam through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
