Considering an MSN-ED

Specializes in O.R., Circulating Nurse.

Hello! I am finishing my RN to BSN and am considering an MSN-ED, but when I look for jobs in that area, I only find jobs for DNP's. Is it possible to teach with only an MSN-ED? If so how do you find available jobs as I've been looking everywhere I can think of to find examples of MSN-ED jobs.

I think it depends on what level you want to teach.  I teach clinical in a LPN program with just a BSN.   I've read that you need to be at least one degree higher than the one you want to teach.  If you want to teach MSN students you will need a doctorate degree. Iv'e seen a lot of job postings for faculty jobs that only require a MSN.  I'm not sure how to filter job requirements.

Hospital Educators usually require the MSN-ED. So if you have interest in staying within the hospital and doing nursing staff education or patient education, that is a possibility.

Yup, totally possible! I have my MSN in Nursing Education and teach part time (didactic, lab & clinical) for a hybrid ABSN program.

And you don’t have an acute care background?
