University of North Carolina at Greensboro

School of Nursing

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) seeks a creative, visionary, and nationally respected scholar to serve as the Director of the PhD Program and Daphine Doster Mastroianni Distinguished Professorship (Endowed). The Director will ensure the quality and manage operations for the PhD program, including leading curriculum review and revision, overseeing student recruitment, enrollment, matriculation and graduation, student advising, and program evaluation. As Distinguished Professor, the PhD Director will support the research, teaching, practice, and service missions of the School of Nursing.  An accomplished, doctorally-prepared nurse, the scholar must be a leader in education, research or healthcare, and present excellence in teaching, a record of peer-reviewed publications, and external funding. The Director and Distinguished Professor will have a dynamic opportunity to lead the PhD program, impact the research training of its students, serve as a mentor to faculty, and contribute to the future scholarly direction of the School of Nursing.

UNCG is a public, coeducational, doctoral-granting, residential university and one of the three original institutions of the University of North Carolina System. The University holds two classifications from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching — as a “doctoral university with high research activity” and for deep “community engagement” in its curriculum, outreach and partnerships. With an enrollment of approximately 20,000 students, including 3,600 graduate students and 3,000 faculty and staff, UNCG is considered one of the most diverse universities in the UNC System. The University is known for its inclusive learning community with a campus wide culture that embodies access, equity, diversity, excellence and collaboration. Students of color make up almost half the student body.

The School of Nursing (SON) is designated by the National League for Nursing as a Center for Excellence in Nursing Education, one of only three schools nationwide to achieve this designation four consecutive times. The SON enrolls more than 1,300 students in its undergraduate and graduate programs: Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), the RN to BSN, Master of Science of Nursing (MSN), an MSN/MBA, the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), and PhD program.
