I love my job as an educator in academia. It's perfect for me after 38 years of bedside practice.
How would you counsel someone who was interested in staying at the bedside in some capacity, but also wanting to get into academia?
One of the challenges is the pay in academia... especially if one is enjoying the pay of an experienced bedside nurse. Does the pay increase with a DNP?

99 days out of 100 i am happy with my job as a nurse educator rather than working as an NP. Not EVERY college pays poorly. My starting pay was par with a starting NP salary.
I can also say that the depth of my knowledge has increased leaps and bounds being an educator.
