What career opportunities are available for nurse educators?
Nursing schools nationwide are struggling to find new faculty to accommodate the rising number of new students. This shortage provides many job opportunities. It also affords a higher level of job security and provides career options for those who wish to maintain dual roles as educators and direct patient care providers.
