Hello everyone! I'd like to pick your brains a bit.
I have a BSN, and have always been interested in teaching. A local community college is offering a clinical nurse adjunct instructor training program. It is a 48 hour long course, with half the hours done in lecture and the other half in clinical. It sounds very interesting. I thought it might be a good way to determine if I'd ever want to pursue a master's degree in order to teach.
Anyway, I was wondering whether you think that doing this course would open any doors for me, in terms of teaching. It seems like a MSN is required most of the time, but are BSN RNs ever hired as clinical instructors? I assume it would help if I ever wanted to teach in an LPN program or a CNA program? The class costs about $1000. I'd kind of like to know whether it would be "worthwhile", you know? For my own professional growth and curiosity, it definitely would. But, as far as jobs, I'm wondering...
Any thoughts? Thanks!
