Nursing Instructor Resume Cover Letter
A certified nurse instructor needs to have a master's degree in nursing and a good amount of experience of nursing work. They may complete their education with hospital-based diploma program with minimum credit hours of 40-60 in physiology, nutrition, chemistry and other subjects. No one directly becomes a nurse instructor or nurse educator; for that, one needs to have the nursing work himself for a considerable amount of time. A common beginner's course in nursing is the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) which is a two-year course.The common tasks of nurse instructor (also known as nurse faculty or nurse educator) are teaching the trainee nurses, preparing them for exams and training them for on-the-job day to day responsibilities. They may be on the hospital staff working closely with the new trainees or they may be a part of faculty with a medical college or university.
