clinical experience to be a Nurse Educator
- 0Nov 21, '11 by Tori1626Hello all,
I am an ADN student graduating in December who really wants to continue her education and be a nurse educator. Does anyone have suggestions on areas of nursing to get ecperience in before teaching, besides genreal medical/surgical experience. I really want to be able to be the best teacher possible, so any suggestions would be greatfully appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your time!

I can see where just about everything would help be a better educator, but it seems a little impossible and impracticle to get experience in everything.In my state, you have to have at least 3 years of clinical experience. However, there is no one setting that is best. I would pick a specialty that you enjoy and later look for a teaching position that encompasses that specialty.
