Teaching/Learning in Nursing and Health Sciences Certificate
About the Program
The Teaching/Learning in Nursing and Health Sciences Certificate provides academic preparation for a career in education in a variety of contexts. The
courses focus on theories and processes related to instructional design and delivery, learner assessment and evaluation, and curriculum design and development. The certificate includes a capstone course where students apply and synthesize content in a practicum experience (90 contact hours) that is individualized to students' needs, interests, and career goals.
Consider this program if you are or wish to become:
- Faculty member in nursing or other health science
- Staff Educator
- Health Educator
- Client/Patient Educator
This online program consists of four courses (3 semester hours each) and can be completed in three to four semesters of part-time study.
Courses are offered during the fall, spring, and summer terms.
Students enrolled in UIC graduate programs may also enroll in the certificate or take individual courses as electives.
Course content was designed to prepare students to meet the education requirements for the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) examination offered by the National League for Nursing (NLN). Students who wish to sit for the examination will also need a master’s or doctoral degree in nursing and experience in the academic faculty role. Please see the NLN website for more information.
Because the Teaching/Learning Certificate is a fully online program, students are assessed e-tuition. The current e-tuition rate (2012-2013) is $762 per credit hour. Students currently enrolled in a UIC graduate program are charged range tuition.
