Graduate Minor in Nursing Education

The Graduate Minor in Nursing Education is open to graduate students in the Sinclair School of Nursing as well as nurses interested in teaching in a school of nursing who are graduate students in other departments on campus (e.g. Health Education, Public Health, Health Management and Informatics, Human Development and Family Studies, etc.).

Graduate nursing students who already have a MS in Nursing Education or a Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education will not be eligible for a graduate minor in nursing education as their prior graduate coursework is substantively identical to the required courses.


The graduate minor in nursing education consists of a minimum of 10 graduate credit hours of nursing education coursework.

Choose two courses from the following:
NURSE 8854Teaching Strategies in Nursing and Healthcare3
NURSE 8864Curriculum Development in Nursing3
NURSE 8874Evaluation Strategies in Nursing and Healthcare3
After completion of two core courses, students will complete a faculty supervised 4 credit teaching nursing practicum. Students may select from two practicum courses which best meet their learning needs and professional goals:
NURSE 8950Teaching Nursing Practicum4-5
or NURSE 8954 Distance-Mediated Teaching Nursing Practicum
These aforementioned courses also can be supplemented by problems courses.
