About the Program

The University of Texas at Arlington College of Nursing and Health Innovation can prepare you for a career as a nurse educator in Associate and Baccalaureate nursing programs, as well as education positions in healthcare delivery systems. The Online MSN Nursing Education program concentrates on the core knowledge needed to develop curricula, advance teaching skills and evaluate and develop active strategies in the classroom.

The online nursing education program prepares nurses with the knowledge and skills needed to promote student engagement, student retention and active learning. Simulation and other relevant teaching strategies are also part of the online MSN Nursing Education program. This accredited program also provides preparation for national certification (CNE) and career options that include roles such as Clinical Nurse Educator, Adjunct Professor and Patient Education Coordinator, to name a few.

UT Arlington's Online MSN in Nursing Education program includes these key elements:

  • Coursework is delivered through a proven technology-based learning model, providing state of the art online courses enhanced with clinical experiences.
  • The instructional format is unlike traditional semester schedules, giving students the flexibility to enter and progress through the program quickly or at a preferred pace.
  • Graduates have the advantage of clinical experiences (students must complete 180 non-precepted clinical hours and 135 precepted clinical hours for a total of 315 clinical hours), enabling practice and preparation for the transition into an actual nursing education role.
