I am in an entry-level MSN program, recently passed the NCLEX (woohoo!), and now have nine months left until I graduate.
I have realized that I am drawn toward teaching or possibly some type of coordinating position. I certainly appreciate and respect the value in having hands-on nursing experience before transitioning into teaching, but I also know that most bedside nursing isn't for me. To clarify, I am interested in teaching foundational, didactic coursework or topics like leadership or ethics.
Can you share any thoughts on pursuing this career path without 2+ years of floor experience, as is usually recommended/required on faculty job postings? Do you have any recommendations on other jobs that I might not know about? Thanks so much!
