    This talking in the third person deal reminds me of Steinfield episode. The guy in the gym....."Jimmy" Jimmy likes this, Jimmy likes that. It was quite funny in the show. But then, I find that show very funny all the time. I can't remember what happened to Jimmy..........

    Now, I remember. Jimmy was carried off..screaming and yelling... at Krammer, I think......"Jimmy will get you that this....Jimmy will make you pay for that"........... I don't think the people who carried him off where wearing white coats, where they?

    I teach in the LVN program at a local City College. I cannot teach in the ADN program without a Masters in Nursing. However, I do have a jurisdoctorate and can teach in a BSN program at a University that also has a Law School and obtain tenure. Figure that one out!

    Anyway, I love teaching and passing on my years of experience and knowledge to future nurses.

    P.S. Sometimes people will use intellect and logic and talk in the third person because they have trouble dealing with their emotions or feelings. Just something to think about Mario?

    Mario's Inverse Squared Law applied

    Individuals with an abundance of logic, feelings and emotion can talk in third person because they can, and dare not be trite.

    If you suggest critisism of an individuals expressive style, you have trouble dealing with emotions or feelings.

    :roll

    Creative style can neither be created or destroyed.
    When creative style is applied, there is always some heat created.

    (seriously) I want to thank you, fiestynurse for your input here. My nutrition instructor is also a JD. I didn't know what that meant until I asked her.

    I envy you for being a teacher because I would love to experience what you experience :-) Mario one day hopes to have shoes like you :-)

    I teach nursing part-time. To answer your question, you must have an MSN. If you want to see tenure, you need a Ph.D [or any other form of Doctoral degree, i.e., D.Ed., Ed.D., D.N.S., etc.], not all tenured faculty have Ph.D's, but it is pretty much the standard.

    If you do go on, be sure that you get some education courses under your belt. It's harder to teach than it looks.

    best thing i can do for my patients is care and make them laugh even in the middle of their pain..........sorta quirky that way i guess................(of course being a good nurse goes without saying.....or so micro feels)

    teaching.......i love teaching bcls.................

    mario, keep on third personning...........shows you are mario and cut out copy of ?????????

    you would be a great teacher and there are a lot of opportunities out there even prior to completing your nursing degree(even adn)...........with health care provider cpr, you can take class for bcls instructor and teach cpr.........

    to teach cna's, you have to be a nurse...........

    to teach lpn's, you have to be an rn(clinical--adn) and lecture(bachelor's).....

    course then you move on into further and you have to go further....................

    of course patient teaching, you do all the time with your cares and then formally.................

    we teach with all we do and say!!!!!!!!! just make sure you know the lesson plan!!!!!!!!! teaching can be right, wrong or not for me!!!!!!!!!

    fiesty nurse and all that are formal teachers out there.......thx for teaching and for caring for those coming up into field and further into profession............not all nurses eat their young or each other..................

    I have been reading some of the postings and agree with the majority of responses. I also was involved with teaching LVN's until yesterday. Reasons for leaving this position were numerous. Let me first explain that this is a private vocational school (not a community college) where government monies are involved. There are 2 teachers involved per class (due to the need to split up clinicals - about 30 per class and clinical sites only take 15). The teacher (what they refer to as "lead teacher") was an LVN and I was an RN. She would do the assignments, give the tests and basically "lead." Many of the students I would not feel comfortable working with if they did become licensed, however, the goal was primarily to "get them through." These were the primary reasons for leaving this institution. Many VN and RN instructors working through the public schools, and adult education programs are very satisfied with their work due to the fact that they can set high standards and remove students whom they feel are inadequete. I am working on getting my MSN now in order to teach in this environment. What are your opinions?
