UR School of Nursing to Host Certified Nurse Educator Prep Course

This fall, the University of Rochester School of Nursing will host the National League for Nursing’s one-day Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) prep course. Linda Turchin, MSN, RN, CNE, will lead this intensive review to assess readiness and identify areas for further study. The CNE prep course also includes:

  • certification implications for nurse faculty
  • CNE eligibility requirements, registration process, and scheduling process
  • analysis of CNE test blueprint
  • introduction of resources available for certification preparation
  • CNE renewal process

Maria Marconi, EdD, RN, CNE, specialty director of the Master’s Program in Nursing Education at the School of Nursing, says the review course is an excellent way for current or aspiring nurse educators to prepare for the CNE exam.

“Nurse educators who become certified serve as leaders and role models,” Marconi says. “For academic nurse educators, it establishes nursing education as a specialty area of practice and creates a means for faculty to demonstrate their expertise in this role. It also communicates to students, peers, and the academic and health care communities that the highest standards of excellence are being met.”

The course will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 9 at Helen Wood Hall, 255 Crittenden Blvd., Rochester, New York. The cost is $329 for NLN members and $429 for non-members.
