Position Overview

Primary Purpose of the Position

A significant result of the nursing shortage is the limited number of qualified nurse educators. In order to meet the instructional need, adjunct faculty are an integral part of the curriculum and faculty structure in the Division of Nursing ( DON ). Without adjunct faculty, the DON would not be able to meet the instructional needs of the nursing program. Adjunct faculty positions provide the DON an opportunity to hire experienced nurse educators, clinicians, and practitioners to assist in meeting the mission, vision, and objectives of the division. Adjunct faculty focus principally on excellence in instruction and engagement. In addition to their instructional responsibilities in the classroom, clinical, and/or on-line environments, adjunct faculty provide clinical and practicum supervision of nursing students; collaborate and develop professional relationships with healthcare agencies, professional organizations, and other constituencies. Adjunct faculty are critical to the implementation of the curriculum, instruction and supervision of students and success in meeting learning outcomes. Adjunct faculty coach and mentor students during the academic experience and beyond.

Primary Function of Organizational Unit

The Family Nurse Practitioner ( FNP ) concentration prepares graduates to provide comprehensive primary care to patients, across a broad range of health care settings, especially underserved and disadvantaged patients, and those of diverse ethnicity. The FNP curriculum includes 51 credit hours and 672 practicum hours. Full-time students complete the curriculum in two years, while the part-time students complete the curriculum in three years.
FNP graduates are eligible to sit for the American Association of Nurse Practitioners ( AANP ) or American Nurses Credentialing Center ( ANCC ) National Family Nurse Practitioner Certification exam
