Are you considering enhancing your nursing career by going back to school? Does teaching future generations of nurses appeal to you?

Would you like to work in an academic setting while continuing to provide patient care?

Do you have innovative ideas for curriculum and coursework?

If so, earning a Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN) with a concentration in Nursing Education may be the next step for you.

Nurse educators teach undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education nursing courses in all types of classrooms. In addition to direct instruction, nurse educators develop and evaluate curriculum, conduct research projects, and work one-on-one with students. The scheduling flexibility that comes with this position allows many to divide their time so they can teach and continue working directly with patients.

If becoming a nurse educator is the career path you would like to follow, earning an advanced degree is the first step you need to take. This section contains several helpful resource articles that will help you better understand the responsibilities of nurse educators, the job outlook, and some of the challenges and opportunities faced by those who have chosen this career.
