Position Overview

Primary Purpose of the Position

Currently, the Division of Nursing seeks applicants to teach courses in the School of Health Sciences for the 2017-2018 academic year.
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 advanced practice nurses and doctoral 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 mentorship of DNP students and success in meeting learning outcomes.

Primary Function of Organizational Unit

The BSN to DNP curriculum is an 87 semester-hour (minimum of 1192 clinical hours) program of learning that prepares nurses for entry into advanced practice with a clinical focus in the Family Nurse Practitioner area of specialization as well as DNP competencies. The curriculum is designed for students who have earned a bachelor’s (or higher) degree in nursing and want to pursue a DNP. This curriculum requires 3 years from the completion of the BSN program (6 semesters and 2 summers). Upon completion of the BSN to DNP curriculum, students are eligible to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Family Nurse Practitioner certification exam or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) certification exam.
The MSN to DNP curriculum is a 39 semester-hour (minimum of 520 clinical hours) program of learning designed to equip advanced practice registered nurses with DNP competencies in their area of specialization. This curriculum requires 1.5 years beyond the MSN program completion (4 semesters: fall, spring, summer, and fall).
