Immaculata University will begin offering a new doctoral program in Nursing Education within its Higher Education Ed.D. program beginning in Fall 2015. Applications are now being accepted.

The Nursing Education concentration equips registered nurses (RNs) to become highly qualified faculty who also have the skills and experience to lead departments, colleges and schools of nursing and to teach the next generation of nurses effectively in both classroom and clinical settings. Students will study all aspects of higher education and also partake in specialty courses in nursing education that cover various concerns related to the field of nursing.

“Earning a doctorate is essential to building the knowledge and skills to become an extraordinary teacher and an effective leader. The Ed.D. in Higher Education with the concentration in Nursing Education provides both to committed, energetic professionals in the field,” stated Judith Witt, Ph.D., director of the Ed.D. in Higher Education program at Immaculata.

This 60-credit program in Nursing Education is designed to be completed in four years. With a 14-week semester, faculty members teach in a blended format, which is half face-to-face and half online. Students progress through the program in a cohort model allowing enhanced student interaction, support, and timely program completion. Students will also complete a practicum in an area of nursing education, nursing education administration, or nursing education leadership.

Applicants must be a registered nurse (RN) and hold an earned Master of Science in Nursing to be eligible to enroll in the concentration in Nursing Education.
