Nurse educators are prepared at the master’s or doctoral level and practice as teachers, mentors, and faculty in community colleges, universities, and hospitals and other health care facilities. They work with students studying nursing for the first time as well as experienced nurses pursuing advanced degrees and growing their knowledge and skills.

Nurse educators find their work rewarding as they see students and practicing nurses grow in their skills and knowledge. They have the opportunity to collaborate with other health professionals in the classroom setting as well as the clinical setting.

  • Nurse educators serve in a variety of roles that range from full time positions to adjunct (part-time) clinical faculty or clinical extenders.
  • Nurse educators and faculty may work full time in the college setting or the service setting or in a shared role in both settings.

Contact the Human Resources Department at the hospital or college in your community for further information.
