Do you enjoy working as an RN but want to make a real difference in the future of the nursing profession? If you have a passion for nursing and want to share that passion with others, you can get your nursing master's degree online and become a nurse educator.
An online degree program offers flexibility, convenience and a lower cost than conventional university programs. RNs have two options when it comes to earning their online nursing master’s degrees.
RNs with their BSN can earn their MSN in Education in about three years or less. An online master’s degree in nursing opens a world of opportunities for graduates to teach at top nursing schools and groom future generations of nurses.
RNs with a two-year degree or nursing diploma have the unique option of completing their bachelor’s degree coursework and simultaneously earning an MSN in Education. An RN to MSN degree program takes more time, but students attending an online university can work at their own pace and continue on to a rewarding career as a nurse educator.
