Graduate Certificate Overview
The 17 credit hour graduate certificate in Teaching in Nursing is offered in an online format and consistent with the National League for Nursing (NLN) Nurse Educator Competencies. This program is designed for nurses seeking academic teaching positions and those whose clinical roles include teaching and professional development. 

This certificate program draws on the international and national reputations and expertise of the nursing pedagogical experts on the faculty and the history of excellence in nursing and distance education at Indiana University School of Nursing. IUSON holds two Center of Excellence designations from NLN in Promoting the Pedagogical Expertise of Faculty (2017-2022) and in Advancing the Science of Nursing Education (2016-2021) and has an international reputation for developing and testing innovative pedagogies and delivering distance education courses to students and nurse educators throughout the world.
