Nursing Education. This country is increasingly in need of qualified nurse faculty who have been educated to function effectively in academia. A significant part of the nursing shortage is related to the limited number of faculty available to teach the highly qualified applicant pool of men and women who apply to nursing programs across the country. The University of Utah College of Nursing is contributing to the next generation of nurse educators by offering a master’s degree in Nursing Education.

Studying at a Distance - The Nursing Education program is available via distance, but primarily only to students near the Intermountain Region (Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming). Participation may not be possible in all areas. Utah residents must live more than one hour’s drive from the University of Utah to participate as a distance student.
