Graduate Certificate in Teaching in Health Care Systems

Interested in furthering your education, but not sure about a master's degree? Earning a graduate certificate is a great way to find out if higher education is for you. A graduate certificate in teaching in health care systems prepares you to educate other nurses, client and family groups and take part in staff development. Get the training you need to fill the demand for nurse educators. 

If you decide to go on to earn your master's in nursing, some credits may be applied to our nursing education graduate degree programs.

Graduate studies in nursing set you up for success.

Nurses with a master's degree are:

  • More marketable: A nurse with an MSN is qualified for far more job opportunities than one with an RN or BSN.
  • Making more money: Nurses with an MSN make $96,000 a year on average.
  • Able to customize: When you pursue an MSN, you have the chance to get more specialized in your position in areas such as research, mental health care, pediatric care and oncology.

At Eastern, you’ll benefit from the knowledge and hands-on practice of highly qualified faculty, while having the opportunity to learn in a variety of settings for clinical experiences. And, if you're interested in continuing your education, we not only offer four nursing graduate degrees, but two doctoral programs.
