Earn a master’s in nursing education degree through Texas Woman's University College of Nursing’s 100% online program. Experienced nursing faculty will teach you how to teach, how to motivate, how to ignite the passion and how to inspire future nurses.

Degreed nurse educators go on to teach at four-year colleges and universities, two-year community colleges, hospital education departments and online programs. Often, nurse educators find the freedom to create their own schedule as well as experience an ever-changing daily routine.

Students are also assigned to participate as a nurse educator at an approved facility near the student’s local areas and may work alongside experienced TWU nursing faculty in the Houston simulation laboratories.
