Who are the Students?

Since 1994 the Teacher Education Program(now known at the Transformative Nursing Education Program- TNEP) has prepared hundreds of professionals to be more effective teachers.

  • Participants come from a variety of states, countries and professional backgrounds.
  • Participants are: nurse-midwives, nurse-practitioners, social workers, researchers, and advanced practice nurses. Most participants are mid-career.
  • Participants are interested in sharing their professional expertise through teaching.
  • Not all participants envision a classroom teaching role. Some will use their TNEP skills in clinical settings, non-profit agencies and research environments.
  • Completion of the TNEP leads to the skills and confidence needed to provide leadership in a teaching/learning situation.
  • After completion of the TNEP, graduates are qualified to take the NLN Certified Nurse Educator Exam.
