In response to the pressing need to educate a new generation of nurses, The University of Alabama has developed the EdD in Instructional Leadership for Nurse Educators.
The interdisciplinary course of study prepares practicing nurses for faculty positions in colleges and universities. Courses are designed and taught collaboratively by Nursing and Education faculty to ensure that students develop the teaching skills, research base, curricular knowledge, and technological expertise needed by faculty in community college and university settings.
Because most students who enroll in the program work full time, coursework is offered in a convenient format. The program combines online courses with just four weekend meetings on campus each semester (Friday evening and all day Saturday).
