Hi there! I just thought I'd post a couple questions for anyone who is willing to answer them.
I am a 2nd year graduate student working on my MSN in Nursing Education. So far I love the program and all that I'm learning. I decided to go the teaching route in nursing about 3 years ago and am now making good on that plan!
My clinical background has been labor and delivery, post-partum and nursery. Currently I am working in research at a birth defects center, and am doing that for a paycheck, basically.
I have been offered a job in an Educational Resources dept as a Education Coordinator. My job would be mainly orientation of new nurses and clinical staff. Some of the classes include med/surg concepts, such as chest tubes, respiratory issues, etc. I would love
to teach things related to Labor and Delivery however, there already is a Coordinator in place doing just that.
I am worried about being "qualified" to teach such classes when my expertise is so limited to a specialty area.
Thoughts? Guidance? Help?
