Healthcare is complex and needs competent leaders as never before. Your experience on the frontlines of nursing is an excellent foundation for compassionate leadership in healthcare.

The M.S. in Nursing: Nurse Educator program at Bethel helps you transition into leadership with a graduate program that is both comprehensive and versatile.

Our program prepares nurses for roles in academia, staff development, and patient education, while leading to doctoral studies for those planning to teach nursing at the undergraduate or graduate levels. 

Courses cover nursing knowledge, adult educational theory, and leadership so that students learn to:

  • Assess adult learners
  • Formulate appropriate teaching-learning strategies
  • Design measures to evaluate learner outcomes
  • Analyze political, cultural, technological or other influences on educational systems
  • Apply leadership principles to improve education

Offered in a Christian environment, our graduate nursing program helps nurses become confident leaders, able to guide people and organizations in ways that improve healthcare quality. Graduates will be effective teachers or educational administrators.

All courses at Bethel have our distinctive hallmarks: an emphasis on ethical leadership grounded in principles of the Christian faith; and the recognition of a global family, in which respect is due to all people across lines of race, culture, religion, and socio-economic status.

B.S. to M.S. Combined Option

If you're an R.N. with a bachelor's degree in a major other than nursing, you can enroll in our B.S. to M.S. Combined Option. Check out all the details about that option, including our prerequisite bachelor's courses that will prepare you for the master's program.
