Nursing Education
Teachers College was the first academic setting to educate nurses. Nursing education began at Teachers College in 1899. The Nursing Education Program has a long and distinguished tradition of commitment to the education of nurses who have diverse roles in academic and community settings in the and abroad. Current placement of the program within the Department of Health and Behavior Studies ensures education with an interdisciplinary approach to problems in nursing, health, and society.

This program is designed for:
(1) Nurse practitioners with masterís degrees who want to take the lead in developing innovative interventions for improving health behavior outcomes in primary care;
(2) Nurse educators with masterís degrees who want to gain more expertise in all aspects of education, including gaining the research skills that all faculty of the 21st century will be expected to have; and
(3) Clinical specialists with masterís degrees who want to improve their effectiveness in helping patients with chronic illness achieve maximal functioning.

The purpose of this program is to give students who are registered nurses with masterís degrees in nursing doctoral level education aimed at understanding and changing health behavior and at educating both clients and
nursing students. It is well established that over 50% of mortality of citizens can be attributed to lifestyle. With the globalization of the marketplace and of epidemics of infectious diseases, lifestyle and health behavior also significantly affect the health and well-being of much of the worldís population. Graduates of this program will be prepared to design interventions and conduct research on health behavior, health education, and health promotion. In addition, graduates of the pro-gram will be conversant with theory and current trends in nursing so that they can use nursing knowledge and expertise to improve the health and well being of the citizens of the and of the global community.
