Nursing Post Master's Certificate (teach-out in progress)
The TN eCampus MSN Program Partnership has completed its original mission, and each of the original six university partners now offer their own independent MSN Program outside of the partnership. Therefore, TN eCampus is no longer accepting new applications to the MSN Program Partnership. The MSN Program Partnership remains fully committed to allowing the students who are currently enrolled in the program to have an opportunity to successfully complete the program and to ensure they are graduating from a fully accredited program.
This certificate program is designed to prepare students to meet established nurse educator competencies in one of five advanced clinical-focused areas: Adult Health Nursing; Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing; Critical Care Nursing; and Women's Health and Perinatal Nursing. Pediatric Nursing will be available in Spring 2016.
The program provides a firm foundation in teaching/learning principles, curriculum/program development and evaluation, and methods to evaluate learning. The curriculum prepares graduates to assume the educator role with competence and confidence.
This certificate program is offered through a partnership with Austin Peay State University, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University, and The University of Memphis.
The program is designed to offer didactic/theory courses online through the universities and to coordinate clinical/practicum study in each student's home area when possible. The partnership model allows the universities to share their most valuable resources to enrich program offerings. Classes are taught by faculty from all of the universities. Faculty members are recognized experts in their content area, regardless of institution of employment.
The Master of Science in Nursing program is fully accredited through fall 2019 by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), formerly the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).
