Post-Masters certificates in Nursing Educator and Nursing Administrator are designed to provide Masters-prepared registered nurses with advanced knowledge related to the scope of practice for academic and staff development nurse educators and nurse administrators in their chosen field or specialization.  Courses emphasize the professional role of the nurse educator/ administrator, leadership roles, interpersonal and communication skills, diversity, critical thinking, the application of ethical, legal and professional standards of practice, and the evaluation of forces within the health care delivery and/or academic institutions impacting the professional role of the nurse educator or nurse administrator in his or her chosen field. Generally speaking, these programs offer four courses for a total of 15 credits. Usually hybrid courses these days, they typically offer a mix of online and in-class learning.

Courses in the Nurse Educator certificate focus on the role of the nurse educator and responsibilities related to teaching, scholarship, service, clinical excellence, trends in education and ethical/legal issues impacting nurse educators on the cutting-edge. Students explore a variety of learning styles, needs and characteristics of diverse learners, competency-based instruction, with a special focus on new trends in creative instructional technology strategies and techniques. Evaluative processes in nursing education in the classroom, simulation, clinical and distance learning are often included. The process of designing dynamic curricula and programs that are relevant in a changing and challenging health care environment, as well as the accreditation process of nursing programs are explored, often in depth with respect to one’s chosen concentration or track.

The Nurse Administrator certificate is designed to prepare nurses to assume managerial roles in diverse settings; hospitals, long term care facilities, community service agencies, ambulatory care facilities, governmental agencies and corporations, and sometimes includes a course on informatics. Courses focus on developing core knowledge related to delivery of care; legal, regulatory and ethical issues; healthcare economics; health care environment; and professional practice ethics. Students use organizational, analytic, strategic planning, financial, human resources, and evaluation skills to fully prepare them for the role of nurse leader. Nurse administrator courses also focus on organizational and leadership theories, regulatory standards, risk management, quality assurance, strategic planning and concepts of human resource management.
