I was in a NP program, had everything done except for clinical when I decided to pug my degree on hold cause I wasn't really sure it was what I wanted. I love working at the bedside, and don't really see myself working in a clinic setting. I have been evaluating my future, and have been thinking more and more about nursing education. The problem is the school that I have completed all of my course work at doesn't offer a nursing education major. They offer a clinical nurse leader degree instead. I have been thinking about doing this just to be done, and I would only need three classes. Most posts on here I see about CNL's involve direct entry CNL's, and not experienced nurses. Would I be taken seriously in nursing education with a CNL? I feel I would be more competitive with a nursing education degree, but I have too many credits to transfer at this point.
