TWU College of Nursing now offering online master’s in nursing education


DENTON/DALLAS/HOUSTON — Texas Woman’s University’s College of Nursing is offering a new online master of science in nursing education degree for nurses who wish to become nurse educators. The university is accepting students for the new 100 percent online degree program for fall 2007 and spring 2008 enrollment.

“The online MS in nursing education program puts TWU in a very competitive position to recruit outstanding nurses who want to become educators,” said Dr. Pat Holden-Huchton, associate dean of the TWU College of Nursing in Denton. “TWU will also benefit by providing a very real solution to both the nursing shortage and the nursing faculty shortage in Texas and the nation.”

The online MS in nursing education is a 36-hour program that is completed entirely online over three semesters.

The Texas Legislature recently awarded TWU $714,000 over two years for the online MS in nursing education program. The funds will be used for stipends to recruit students.

Stipends of $30,000 are available for Texas residents accepted to the program who are full-time graduate students taking 12 credit hours each semester and commit to teach full time in an accredited nursing program in a Texas state-supported university or community college for two years after graduating.

“We are so appreciative of the financial support for this initiative from the 80th legislative session,” Dr. Marcia Hern, dean of the TWU College of Nursing, said.

The program is available through TWU’s Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses.
