Coe College seeks qualified applicants for 2 full-time positions, a non-tenure track (NTT) and a tenure track (TT) appointment, in Nursing beginning August 2022.

Courses taught between these two positions will include traditional and preceptorship style adult medical surgical clinical rotations, general psychomotor skill labs with limited simulation, research methods, and maternal-child health courses. Candidates with expertise in acute adult medical-surgical, obstetrics/pediatrics and research methods are especially encouraged to apply.

The successful NTT candidate may have the opportunity to teach a theory classroom course. TT faculty may have the opportunity to teach a health-related course, First Year Seminar or a May Term course outside the nursing department. Candidates will see prospective students, actively engage in student advising and serve on all Nursing Department Committees as well as college-wide committees as assigned.

The Nursing Department highly values commitment to a caring, student-centered approach and multicultural perspective in teaching, research, and practice.

By start date, a doctoral degree is required for the TT position, and MSN for the NTT position.  Candidates who can provide evidence of successful teaching, integration of health-related concepts for diversity, equity and inclusion and an interest in mentoring undergraduate students will be strongly preferred. Active professional membership is encouraged and evidence of occasional nursing practice (i.e. summers) is preferred.

Department Description:

Coe’s nursing department currently includes 4 full-time, tenure-track faculty. The department is an integral part of the college. Accredited through CCNE, the Coe College Nursing program has a strong commitment to provide intensive, hands-on clinical experiences for students. The Coe College Nursing Department is proud to attract outstanding and diverse students and has a long history of highly successful outcomes.

As the faculty member becomes more familiar with the College and Department expectations, they will increasingly incorporate more teaching, advising and service responsibilities into their role. Teaching clinical and a classroom course requires preparation of course syllabi, course materials appropriate to the modality of delivery, course lectures, discussion topics, and student assignments. Candidates are expected to critically evaluate student work and provide constructive and timely feedback as well as remain current in the teaching and learning best practices in nursing academia and the clinical environment.  The faculty will be expected to participate in faculty initiatives to improve instruction through design and revision of the curriculum, creation of new courses as appropriate, revision of existing courses, and supervision and support of the scholarship of students.
