The School of Nursing at Old Dominion University invites qualified candidates to apply for a full-time, tenure-eligible nursing faculty position in the undergraduate nursing program. We are building a diverse faculty and searching for a faculty member who will share and contribute to our mission to transform healthcare by preparing exceptional nurses, extending nursing science and partnering with our global community. The start date for the position will be December 25, 2022.
Faculty responsibilities will include didactic and clinical instruction in nursing settings for pre-licensure BSN students. The pre-licensure classroom and clinical courses are offered in the summer and fall semesters; thus, faculty will be required to have a summer teaching contract. Online instruction for post-licensure BSN students as well as additional teaching responsibility for lab and clinical courses will round out the faculty member’s workload. Salary and appointment rank are competitive and commensurate with experience.
