Nursing Education Doctor of Nursing Education – Online

About us

The Doctor of Nursing Education (DNE) is a novel professional nursing doctoral degree program to prepare expert nursing educators in teaching-learning, evidence-based practice, innovation, health, wellness and resilience.

Specific academic preparation to prepare doctorally-educated nursing educators is urgent based on national nursing faculty shortages. The proposed DNE program will prepare expert nursing educators dedicated to teaching the didactic and clinical skills to prepare the next generation of nurses.

There are two specialization tracks proposed within the DNE program: academic nursing education and nursing professional development, each with track-specific coursework within the core DNE curriculum. The DNE program is designed for masters-prepared nurses who are passionate about teaching nursing students and nurses in all settings and includes a cumulative capstone project.
