Nursing Education - PostMS

The Nursing Education Post-Master's Certificate is designed for the registered nurse who already holds a Master Degree in Nursing and wishes to add a nurse educator certification. Upon successful completion of program requirements, a certificate is awarded and students are eligible to take the National League for Nursing (NLN) Nurse Educator Certification Examination.

Distance Education Students Residing outside of Indiana:
Each of the states has its own approval processes for out-of-state institutions offering distance education.  While Indiana State University endeavors to offer all of its programs to as wide an audience as possible, all Indiana State University distance education programs may not be available in all states. Post MS Nursing Certificate programs at Indiana State University are not available to residents of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, District of Columbia, Idaho, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia, or Wyoming, US Territories, or International students.
