College of Nursing


A nurse’s education never ends

As one of the leading centers for nursing education in the nation, the MSU College of Nursing provides continuing education that draws on the teaching expertise, education and practice experience of faculty in bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs.

Content areas include faculty development for nurses in:

  • Acute care
  • Ambulatory care
  • Rural health
  • Academic settings

We enhance nursing knowledge on topics such as pain management, case/care coordination, elder care, health promotion, behavioral health, and new models of care delivery.
Specific focus areas include youth, adults and older adults with emphases on health promotion, disease and injury prevention, and treatment of chronic health conditions.

Programs may consist of one-hour “lunch-and-learn” sessions, multiple-hour workshops, one- and two- day conferences, and on-line offerings. Face-to-face and independent study options are offered to accommodate the needs of learners. 

The CNE Provider Unit aims to accomplish the following goals:

  • Provide CNE professional development offerings aligned with the university and MSU College of Nursing mission and goals, and the needs assessment of learners, in order to apply current evidence in education, research, and practice to the daily work of nurses in Michigan.
  • Provide infrastructure support to develop a variety of online and face to face professional education opportunities for nurses that meet the learning needs of professionals.  

  • Expand the internal and external relationships featuring alumni and collaborative partners to develop and implement CNE professional offerings.
  • Support the MSU College of Nursing faculty by sharing expertise in practice and education, and by assisting in the dissemination of research findings.
