Nurse Educators Salary Facts and Career Information

Nurse educators are some of the most influential members of the medical community. They teach nursing students and shape the future of the medical profession from the ground up. These professionals are expected to educate students how to save lives and inspire in them a passion for health care.

Training and Education for Nurse Educators

Those who intend to teach nursing students at a university level are generally required to hold a doctoral degree, though community colleges often hire teachers who have a master's degree. The majority of nurse educators specialize in a niche such as pediatrics, oncology, hospice care, acute care, or cardiology, and many work in the field before pursuing a teaching position. Hands-on experiences can be great inspiration for understanding how and what to teach students. Continuing education programs can also be important for keeping a teacher's perspective fresh.

Nurse Educators Salary and Income

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there were 56,840 nursing educators in 2014, and that number continues to grow as the aging baby boomer generation has an increased need for qualified medical practitioners. Nursing educator salaries vary depending on level of education, geographical location, and the particular teaching institution, as well as additional academic and administrative responsibilities. The mean annual income for nursing educators was $65,240 in 2009, while the median salary was $70,650.
