Program: Nurse Educator Certificate

Program Description

Important Notice: The Nurse Educator Certificate Program has been suspended until further notice and is no longer accepting new students.

The Nurse Educator Certificate Program (NECP) consists of fiveĀ 3-unit courses (15 units) of learning-centered course content focused on methods/theory/practice of classroom and clinical teaching and instruction, and on leadership and faculty role development of the Nursing faculty. The 15 units of coursework will be offered over three semesters. Nurses who complete the Nurse Educator Certificate Program are qualified academically to take the Educator Certification Examination of the National League for Nursing (NLN, 2010).

Admission into programs leading to licensure and credentialing does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or credential. Licensure and credentialing requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the CSU, and requirements can change at any time. For example, licensure or credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., Social Security number or taxpayer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check. Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet licensure or credentialing requirements. The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet licensure or credentialing requirements. Information concerning licensure and credentialing requirements is available from the department. See Notice to Students: Licensure and Certification for more information.
