Adjunct Positions are filled by semester on an as needed basis. Applicants in this applicant pool are reviewed when the department has an immediate need to fill a vacancy. Review of applications will then stop for the semester once the vacancy has been filled.
Adjunct faculty teach courses in Nursing (clinical and lab) including planning, preparation, and delivery of lecture/lab instruction materials at all levels of training. A clinical faculty is the catalyst for student learning. Faculty must provide clinical opportunities for students to meet course objectives. Clinical faculty encourage, collaborate, support, correct, stimulate, and challenge students to think critically in helping students plan for their patients’ optimal wellness, recovery and rehabilitation. Faculty need to discuss assignments with unit managers and staff nurses as well as maintain ongoing verbal and written recording and reporting with them. Faculty members also participate in curriculum development and student advising.
