Average hours a nurse instructor or educator puts in a week

Specialties Educators


What is the average hours you all work as a nursing instructor a week, and the average hours one works as a nurse educator for a hospital. Also what is the salary of a nurse instructor vs. nurse educator and if you get paid hourly what is that amount for a nurse instructor vs. nurse educator. I know nurse instructors work long hours but is it possible to be done with work by 5pm if you come to work a couple hours early? What d you guys do to get all your work done in a timely manner?

As an ADN instructor, I worked ~ 70 to 80 hours per week. My pay was in the low 40's and this was for a year-round salary.

As a BSN instructor, my workload is ~ 40-50 hours per week for 9 mos salary and the pay is in the low 50's.

Hope this helps.
