What Does a Career as a Nurse Educator Look Like?
Nurse educators are registered nurses (RNs) who have earned advanced nursing degrees and have the credentials and knowledge required to teach nursing curriculum at colleges, universities, and hospital-based nursing programs. Nurse educators may determine educational curriculum and standards as they work to prepare students to successfully transition out of academia and into clinical settings.
Nurse educators typically:
- Instruct or teach nursing students in the classroom or clinical setting.
- Oversee clinicals and practical demonstrations of health care knowledge and techniques to ensure nursing students master skills.
- Provide instruction, support and critique of nursing skills and protocol.
- Precept nursing students in clinical settings.
