Nursing, MSN - Emphasis in Nursing Education
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) is a nursing graduate degree with two options for the required emphasis: Nursing Education and Clinical Care Management in Adult and Geriatrics. The MSN program is designed utilizing national accreditation standards in preparation for national certification in each emphasis.
Designed for nurses with a bachelor’s degree in nursing who are ready to take on greater leadership roles in health care and education, the MSN at CCU is an online nursing degree program. Our vision is to empower nurses to practice nursing as ministry and prepare them to be competent, compassionate, moral leaders who excel as servants, shepherds, stewards, and scholars who impact the profession and the world.
To help address the growing demand for expert nurses with a master’s degree, CCU’s online MSN program offers nursing students two opportunities for specialization. Both emphasize the core foundations of advanced nursing practice and Christian principles.
The Nursing Education specialty emphasis prepares nurses to work as nurse educators in diverse settings such as colleges and universities, hospitals, long-term care, or home health and public health. The program emphasizes faith and learning while integrating wholistic teaching methods, instructional design, Christian principles, teaching/learning principles, staff development strategies, student/nurse assessment, and program evaluation. The nursing graduate will be an innovative change agent while teaching within academic or health care settings with experience in using best practices in teaching. Clinical practicum experiences are distributed over four courses for a total of 245 clinical hours.
The Clinical Care Management in Adult and Geriatrics specialty emphasis prepares nurses to work in diverse settings as a clinician, consultant, and coordinator of health care for adult and geriatric populations, emphasizing clinical prevention and improved health outcomes for patients with acute and chronic diseases. The program emphasizes the core foundations of the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) in Adult and Geriatrics, which is an advanced practice nurse (APRN) specialty role. Students build expertise in CNS competencies, regulatory requirements, and Christian principles as a moral leader and change agent for various adult populations. Clinical practicum experiences are distributed over five courses for a total of 500 clinical hours.
