My title says it all. I've considered all areas of nursing, and this seems to be the best fit for me. I LOVE teaching!!! In my former career I was a manager and did a lot of staff training. I created all of the educational material, developed the format, and facilitated the classes. Many other departments came to me for the resources I created. As a nurse, I had a few opportunities to teach nursing procedures and do in-service, I LOVE that! Many times throughout my life people have commented on what they thought I'd be great at.... Law and teaching. I do love law, and could also see myself in that field in a previous life. I do not want to go to law school and essentially start from scratch as a lawyer. I'm pursing my BSN and MSN in education now. I see myself teaching in a University and doing research. There is definitely a PhD in my future. I expect to finish my MSN in 2013. What can I do now to gain 2-3 years of classroom teaching experience, so that I am more marketable when I graduate? I am an RN, but do not have my BSN yet, but will by December 2011. I'm going to keep my hospital job (tuition reimbursement), I work there part-time (2 -12's). Would teaching as a medical assistant instructor be considered teaching experience when applying for a University position? Can a non-BSN RN teach LPN's? Any suggestions are welcome.
