Florida Nursing Student Uses MSN Training to Create Veteran’s Patient Education Programs I was continually impressed with how eloquently Becky applied her academic experience to her own professional life. Dr. Larsen says that the MSN, nursing education specialization degree helps nurses transfer knowledge in a way which the learner can understand and assimilate information. In Shelleys case, she immediately applied her course work to establish important veterans programs. Shelley completed her MSN, nursing education specialization in October 2013 and says that her journey was top notch, giving her the knowledge she needed to become a better educator, nurse and person. My experience at American Sentinel has been absolutely great, she says. My professors made learning enjoyable, admissions was accommodating and genuine and my student success advisor went way above and beyond to make my experience as great as it could be. She played an instrumental role in my success. Future Nurse Educator Fueled by the success of her work building the Daytona Beach Veterans Affairs patient education programs, Shelley says that one day she envisions herself teaching as an adjunct at the local community college. I know my degree will bloom into more opportunity, she says. I recommend the MSN, nursing education program to anyone who seeks to understand teaching from a learner standpoint.
