TWU Offers Little Chapel Wedding Package
Online Nurse Educator
The Texas Woman’s University College of Nursing has launched
an online program that helps nurses become the next generation of
nursing instructors. Training more nursing instructors to teach
undergraduate nursing students is a critical element to solving
the nursing shortage.
Nurses who want to teach
can complete nearly two-thirds of their master’s or doctoral
degrees, as well as post-master’s studies, online at TWU through
the Nurse Educator Web-Technology Outreach Network. Clinical coursework
still will take place on campus. Nearly two dozen stipends are available
to nurses who might have some financial hardship in completing the
clinicals or other courses.
Nursing schools in the
United States turned away more than 11,000 qualified applicants
in 2003, according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing
(AACN). In 2002, more than 5,000 applicants were turned away. A
shortage of faculty is the principal reason nursing schools could
not accept all qualified applicants into baccalaureate nursing programs,
according to AACN.
Nurses interested in
the Nurse Educator Web-Technology Outreach Network can contact Constance
Jennings at (713) 794-2100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
