Nurse educators work in both the academic and clinical setting.  In the academic setting, they provide the essential teaching platform for baccalaureate and graduate nursing students who wish to advance their knowledge, practice, and research skills. The nurse educator acquires additional knowledge of nursing principles, assessment, and technical skills to promote quality health care for patients.  In the clinical setting, they educate nurses and assistive personnel to create opportunities for continued learning, professional development, and instruction in new clinical information and technology.
