    A local community college is currently advertising for an instructor for their ADN program. They would like an MSN but will accept a BSN with experience who will work toward an MSN.

    the local university came back & offered me $18/ hr to teach critical care.(with BSN & two certifications). My friends said I was crazy since it's huge pay cut. But I see the importance of a good, interested instructor to students who could be my employees next year. It's just part time, with my FT critical position.

    I just graduated ADN, but all of my lecture instructors have masters degrees. Occasionally we would have a step in clinical instructor with a bachelors degree. ( like when one instructor didn't have time cuz she had to homeschool her teenagers) I live in Ohio, and it is a community college.

    Intresting enough..... My mother is RRT, with an associates and she is adjunct with the same college and teaches clinicals...... So respiratory therapy accepts an associates degree for their instructors.

    BSN at a minimum for ADN education here in NC--would prefer MSN of course, but it is a RARITY when one applies. At least 15 cc across the state are short of nursing faculty and are having difficulty recruiting even BSNs for instructors.

    In Ontario, Canada...each institution varies.
    For theory, they want you to have a Masters.
    For clinical, they want BScN or RN with experience.
    They can't be very choosey since they don't have alot to pick from.

    I'd rather be taught by an experienced floor nurse over some person who has never had hands on experience anyday.

    BSN here. I know they prefer a MSN. Wow hoolahan that salary is a huge slap in the face.

    I just got my MS but could certainly not afford to live on that!
