What? I mean, pay attention to the standards of the programs where you intend to attend, but that doesn’t sound right.
For one, there are a good number of BSN to PhD programs out there, and some in Public Universities; they obviously are fine with the basic BSN level education/leadership content. I’m currently in dissertation in such a program. My program included about 15 hours of MSN educator courses which will allow me to become a certified nurse educator once I defend if I want to go into academia.
The program I attend doesn’t distinguish about what kind of MSN one has (most of my cohort were MSN). Only one of my cohort was MSN-leadership, the rest were MSN-Peds (that’s how they did it in the 80s), or FNP, WHNP.
Once more I’d encourage you to investigate the standards of the program(s) you are interested in but Educator courses will serve you well if you want Academia.
