    Get experience before completing CNE degree. Know how? Go to a community college and see if they need instructors to teach things like first-aid, nutrition, etc. Nurses are qualified to teach those so long as you have a Bachelor's minimally. Sometimes classes are only a few hours one day a week. This will give you the chance to get your feet wet and see if teaching is really where you're heart is. Just sayin.'

    OP I am wondering if you are leaving something out here. Something seems to be missing. What country did you complete your degree in? What kind of degree do you have?

Please elaborate and maybe we can offer some more advice.
