Careers in Nursing Education
Nurse educators are needed in academic settings to prepare students for careers as registered nurses. A diverse student body and increasing reliance on technology tools require an academic nurse educator who can be responsive to these educational trends. College nurse educators enjoy flexible schedules—particularly those teaching classes online.
In clinical settings, nurse educators guide the continuous professional development of working nurses and other clinicians in hospitals and clinics, as well as provide education to patients to ensure reduced readmission rates and complications and enhance the overall patient experience.
