I am interviewing for a FT faculty position at a community college ASN Program. I have a couple of years experience as adjunct and clinical faculty. I graduate in May with an MSN in Nursing Education.
Is it reasonable to work supplemental while employed as FT faculty? I know the pay is sadly low for educators and I would need at least a job in the summer. But it is very difficult (obviously) to find a new job every summer, so it would be best for me to find a supplemental position somewhere. My current employer is NOT supplemental-friendly. I am in a terrible position now in an ICU float pool.
Two positions I am considering:
1. working for an agency
2. supplemental (minimum 12 hours/week) at a cardiac hospital
Do you work supplemental and teach FT? How many hours do you work at your supplemental job during the semester?
