I'm just starting my pre-req's. for nursing school
in a few weeks but I was wondering if anyone out there is a nurse and is involved in patient education. I'm not neccessarily interested in Nurses who work in schools
instructing student nurses but nurses that instruct patients or the general public in health education, diseases, care, etc. As an example, maybe someone that instructs diabetics on what diabetes is and how to manage it or someone that might educate soon to be or new mothers on nutrition, child care and development, etc.
I believe this is a career path I would like to take eventually and was hoping that some of you out there do this in your jobs either full time or part time. If you could tell me a little about what you do and your career path and any other information you feel would be helpful I would appreciate it. I don't know that much about this area of nursing but am eager to learn.
