RN to Nurse Educator

  1. 0
    Hello all,
    I am an ADN student graduating in Decemeber and would like to know if anyone has any comments or opinions about continuing education to Nurse Educator? I really would like to teach after a couple of years of experience in the hospital setting. Does anyone have an opinion on the advantages/disadvantages of getting a BSN first and then going on to MSN vs. taking a ADN to MSN program?

    Thanks in advance for your comments!

    After you get a year or two floor experience I would go straight into a RN-MSN program. Most nursing schools want their instructors to have a MSN. I am at a CC and only one instructor has a BSN and she will be graduating with her MSN in December.

    Good luck! There are a lot of great RN-MSN programs out there!

    I can teach with my BSN while working on my MSN. So for that reason I am glad I got my BSN. I wish you the best of luck in your future!

    I have been leaning toward this, thank for your thoughts!

    That is the only reason I am still considering a BSN, but I am concerned about teaching school and taking increasingly harder classes at the same time. Thank you for the opinion and something to consider!

    Why don't you work on the floor while going for your BSN? I did that and glad I didn't wait. By the time you are finished with the BSN you'll have experience and will be ready for the MSN
