Hey there nurses!
I need your feedback.
I am a new grad RN working a med-surg floor. I am almost to my 1 year milestone.
I currently have an ADN & all prerequisites for my BSN completed. However, teaching is looking appealing to me after all this fast paced stressful environment has got me burnt out in only 10 months time. I appreciate all I've learned. The job experience has been eye opening and strengthened me as a person. However, plain and simple: its not for me. I was considering a dramatic career change these past few months. I don't want to quit nursing entirely. I just want a job that will support my personal strengths. So, I started thinking school nurse. I'm great with kids. Everyone says I would make a good teacher.
How about 2 career options? Everyone knows a good nurse has experience with patient teaching. That is one of my favorite parts of my current jobs is teaching patients.
A BA in education & an AD in nursing?
Can you think of any disadvantages that might occur from having these two different career degrees?
I do not have any interest in continuing my BSN at the current time.
Any nurses out there that have heard of this before or have any advice??
I'll take all I can get from you seasoned nurses / teachers!
