Nursing Education Careers

What Nurse Educators Do

Nurse educators plan, develop and implement education programs for nursing.

Job Outlook

Employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 16 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations, which means there will be a demand for nurse educators to teach the next generation of nurses. Growth will occur for a number of reasons, including an increased emphasis on preventive care; growing rates of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity; and demand for healthcare services from the baby-boom population, as they live longer and more active lives.

Pay

The median annual wage for nurse practitioners was $100,910 in May 2016. The median annual wage for post-secondary nursing instructors and teachers was $69,130 in May 2016. The median annual wage for nurse practitioners was $99,360 in May 2016. 

Work Environment

Nurse educators work in academic or clinical setting
