COVID-19 has worsened the nursing staffing crisis at the exact time that nursing school enrollment is increasing. There is a need for more faculty at nursing schools to meet the demand for students to enroll and to increase the available staff nurses.

Although the new role may result in feeling like a novice, nurses have several transferable skills that help make effective clinical instructors.
