In looking around this site, I have seen seveal mention that they are teachers who are going/went into nursing. I am currently teaching middle school, and hoping to start nursing school in August. I was just curious how many educators-turned-nurses there are out there.

I was an elementary teacher for 3 years before going to nursing school. I was surprised at how much teaching is part of my work now. It is a key factor in my clinical reviews and I get consistently high marks in things pertaining to my educational development and my patient education during clinical rotations. I enjoy that teaching is a big part of my nursing and has proved so helpful!
1 semester to go!
