Teaching Specialist (9754)

Key Responsibilities:
The School of Nursing seeks RNs and other health professionals who hold degrees at the masters or doctoral level for part-time teaching positions in the classroom and/or at clinical practice sites to teach at both the pre-licensure and graduate levels. The primary responsibility is teaching, with an expectation for collaboration with other faculty in courses and programs in which the Teaching Specialist is involved. Most positions are part-time, single semester appointments. Particularly seeking (but not limited to) skills/certifications involving teaching in a lab setting or clinical teaching in the areas of Pediatrics, Psych/Mental Health, Adult Health, and Maternal/Child Health. Some teaching specialist positions involve working with specialty areas in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program, and specialty certification or graduate education is required in the specialty area. This is a continuous job opening.

Program Description:
Because the School of Nursing is a land grant university, and both a top research and teaching institution, it is positioned to approach health issues from all three perspectives. This is reflected in the school's organizational structure. The School of Nursing is organized in thematic cooperatives. This enables faculty and students to focus the combined forces of research, education and practice/service on three health care themes, all of them areas of strength for the school. All faculty participate in a cooperative, each of which is supported by a chair, program associate and program assistant. As a function of this dynamic cooperative structure, issues raised in practice become research questions, and research findings in turn can be shared in the classroom and back in the practice setting. The cooperative structure helps the school realize the true power of a research-driven school. The three cooperatives are: Adult and Gerontological Health, Child and Family Health, Population Health and Systems. The School of Nursing has programs on both the Twin Cities and Rochester campuses.
