    In MN, the BON requires a MSN in nursing to teach full-time. However, many schools get around this when there is a shortage and hire BSNs on a part-time basis. I currently work in the state community college system where salaries start at $30K and top out at $66,750. Most have a nine month contract, but many also teach summer courses or work on curriculum and things you do not have time for during fall and spring semesters. I feel that there is not so much a shortage of MSN prepared faculty, but a shortage of attractive nurse faculty jobs. The difference between my staff RN position at the local hospital and my faculty position (yes, I work 2 jobs) is $28K per year. It is sad that I feel so burned out and underpaid. I am returning to staff nursing and terminating my faculty position this year (and contributing to the educator shortage). We have MSNs out there, the shortage lies with the pay and workload at the colleges.

    Many universities in Australia are starting to coappoint with local teaching hospitals. Much of the education is then down in campus settings split between a traditional university main campus and sattalite campuses based on hospital grounds. Pay wise it is relatively simple with pay scales set by the government. As a clinical educator - employed by a hospital - I earn about 12,000 less then I did as a senior rn in charge of the ward working nights and weekends. My base rate of pay is better (28.40 an hour) but due to no shifts and no weekends I am worse off. Next step education wise is an nurse educator - at about 34 per hour - which is roughly equivalent to my last on the floor position including penalties. (All in Australian dollars...)

    I dream of a fulltime university based apointment - but other than a lack of a masters & a doctorate and a wealth of published work nothing stands in my way
