Should I be concerned that my local community college their minimum requirement for a nursing instructor is a bachelors degree with two years of experience. It said MSN was preferred but does that mean if they don't find anyone that they would take someone with only a bachelors degree in no concentration and education?

It could be that those instructors must meet several requirements:
-years of experience
-an agreement to begin a masters program and finish within a set amount of time
-are only instructing in clinicals, and not teaching in lectures
I was looking at openings for educators at some of the local colleges. For associates programs, a BSN was acceptable to apply, but if given the job, the person had to begin a masters program within 2 years. For the bachelors program, the BSN attending a MSN program could only teach clinicals; lectures were taught primarily by PhDs.
