The certificate in Nursing Education allows for advanced role specialization in nursing education. Four sequential courses for a total of 12 credit hours comprise the certificate requirements. The certificate program is open to all current master's and doctoral students in the College of Nursing, post-MSN students, post-doctoral, and faculty currently teaching in nursing programs. Formal admission to The University of Akron is required as either a graduate student or non-degree graduate student. The awarding of this certificate is not contingent upon a degree completion program.
Applications to the Nursing Education Certificate program are accepted on a rolling basis.
All assistantships (and any fellowships) are awarded through the academic department. Students interested in obtaining an assistantship must apply. New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements. Only those students fully admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree-seeking program are eligible for a graduate assistantship. Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.
Paying for college is a vital part of the education process. It is important to be informed of the many sources of aid available. Student loans are available to degree-seeking graduate students. Information on student loans can be found through the Office of Student Financial Aid. The Office of Student Financial Aid is located in Simmons Hall.
Current tuition and fees schedules can be found through the Office of Student Accounts.
