Nursing Education at Hartwick

This is the latest advancement in nursing education at Hartwick, one of the oldest and most established in New York State. From one of the first U.S. Cadet Nurses Corps programs in 1943 to today, Hartwick nurses have built a reputation as capable and caring bedside nurses and nurse leaders around the country and the world. Now, you can be one of them.

MS IN NURSING EDUCATION

It takes nurses to educate nurses. If you have a BS or a BSN, and at least one year of clinical experience, our Master of Science in Nursing Education will give you the hands-on practice, in-depth theory, and practicum mentorships that will empower you to educate nurses in the classroom and the clinic.
