Hello! I'm considering getting a job that is Monday through Friday with normal business hours for a consistent schedule. I work in a hospital now, but the rotating shifts have been weighing on me for years now. My concern is how can I gain teaching experience to use in the future because I am working on my MSN in nursing education now. Any advice?

Get involved in the education activities in your current workplace. Precept new employees. Precept students, etc. Serve on a project committee that will involved some staff education. Teach CPR. etc. etc. etc. If you keep your eyes open, you may even be able to find a job in staff education that you get even before you graduate.
Good luck to you.

I totally agree with llg. Find a training center coordinator for American Heart (may be a person in your facility who leads the CPR classes). Ask that person how to be a trainer. The more you know the more valuable you are. Plus, AHA has good train-the-trainer programs.
