FNP teach pathophys?

  1. Is a Family Nurse Practitioner degree acceptable for teaching pathophysiology? What about Anatomy and Physiology? I've applied to FNP school and I'm awaiting a decision now. In the meantime I am thinking about other things I enjoy and other ways to use an FNP should I choose to do something non-clinical down the road. Thanks for your input.

    depends on the state and school requirements. In Texas the instructor has to have one degree higher than the student is working towards. So you would be qualified (as far as degrees are concerned) to teach in a BSN program.
