Position Description

Since quality instruction is the primary function of the college, it is the principal responsibility of each instructor to effectively and efficiently stimulate learning in every course.  In addition, each faculty member should provide guidance to students through their role as an academic advisor and in more informal ways.  Additionally, each faculty member is expected to participate in the governance of the college through committees and divisional meetings, through shared leadership within and across divisions, through personal recommendations to college administrators, and through participation in the Faculty Senate.

Nursing faculty may be assigned work in essentially all curriculum content areas. Major clinical areas which may be taught include maternity, medical-surgical, geriatrics, oncology, pediatrics, psychiatric and community/public health nursing.  Responsibilities include classroom, campus lab and clinical site instruction as required in the assigned Associate Degree in Nursing, Practical Nursing, and Nursing Assistant courses.  In some, but not all semesters, assignments will include teaching evening and/or weekend courses. Nursing faculty may also be required to teach classroom or clinical hours during the summer semester – a supplemental part-time contract will be used to compensate nine and one half-month employees who are required to work these hours.

How to Apply

Starting salary will be commensurate with qualifications, experience, and labor market. (Contract is for 9.5 months, but will be paid in 12 equal monthly installments). Excellent references from previous employers must be furnished upon request.
