clinical experience to be a Nurse Educator

  1. 0 Hello 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!

    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.

    Thanks, there is so much out there, I am still a little overwhelmed. 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.
