Walla Walla Community College (WWCC) is accepting applications to fill full-time, tenure-track, Nursing Instructor roles on the Walla Walla campus. The nursing program strives to develop a nursing faculty that reflect and support our nursing student population that includes gender diversity, diversity in sexual orientation, racial diversity, cultural and/or native language diversity, religious diversity, age diversity, and students with disabilities.

At Walla Walla Community College, we inspire all students to discover their potential and achieve their goals by providing relevant, equitable, and innovative learning opportunities and services. We have identified three core themes that describe the fundamental aspects of the College's mission by translating it into practice: Student Success, Strong Communities, and Resource Stewardship. As an organization, we value learning opportunities, a sense of community, diversity, health and humor, excellence, integrity, teamwork, innovation, personal and professional growth, and sustainability.

General Description:

The nursing faculty at WWCC transform the lives of nursing students to fulfill the increasingly complex role of entry-level professional nurses in the provision of safe, compassionate, culturally sensitive, evidence-based, ethically grounded, and client-centered care. The nursing instructor serves as a teacher, mentor, and facilitator of learning to prepare well-qualified graduates to meet the needs of a diverse patient population.

Two different full-time, tenure track, teaching roles will be filled from this recruitment. The specific role assigned will be based on the successful candidate's experience, preference, and needs of the WWCC Nursing Education program:
  • Classroom and Clinical Educator: This teaching assignment includes teaching didactic nursing classes in the classroom, assisting with student instruction in the nursing skills lab, and supervising nursing students in clinical at healthcare agencies in the community. The instructor in this teaching role mentors and advises a specific group of nursing advisees.
  • Clinical Educator: This teaching assignment has a primary focus of providing clinical education and supervision for nursing students in the acute care or community care clinical environments as well as assisting with student instruction in the nursing skills lab.

Quality instruction occurs when the instructor effectively combines a variety of teaching methods to enhance understanding and performance (group discussions and activities, skills demonstrations, and/or classroom lectures, etc.). Measurable student learning outcomes are developed and evaluated to quantify academic success.

    Student Advocate: The nursing instructor advises and/or mentors nursing students on success strategies, program requirements, career options, and graduation requirements. Faculty view the student holistically with consideration for their individual, distinct backgrounds and give guidance to promote individual growth and academic success.
