Classification Title: Nursing Instructor
Anoka-Ramsey Community College is part of the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) an alliance of Minnesota nursing programs, using a common baccalaureate curriculum. The alliance is compiled of seven community colleges and Metropolitan State University; it is dedicated to increasing the educational capacity for attainment of a baccalaureate degree in nursing. This program is intended for individuals wishing to attain a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing who are not currently registered nurses.
The MANE BSN program plan is a four-year, eight semesters (not including summers), 120 credit concept-based baccalaureate curriculum. It is based on a set of core competencies that are intended to prepare graduates to provide care to individuals, families and communities in health promotion, acute or chronic illness, and at the end of life. Students are admitted to a cohort each fall at Metropolitan State.
ARCC is seeking a nursing professional to teach in the MANE program. Primary responsibilities include lecture/lab/clinical instruction and assessment, implementing and evaluating student clinical and lab experiences including selected clinical skills checkoffs. Participation in discipline, division, campus, and college matters through service on committees, attendance at regular meetings, and continued professional development are expected. Teaching assignments may include day, evening, and alternate schedule formats utilizing traditional and alternative delivery methods and virtual learning environments. The Nursing Department has a strong commitment to innovative teaching practices, including civic engagement activities, active learning, online course supplementation, and other student-centered pedagogies.
