The Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing is committed to attracting diverse world-class faculty to advance the School’s mission to educate visionary nurse leaders and scholars, generate and apply knowledge, and transform nursing, health, and systems of health care within the local and global community. Full and part time clinical instructors are sought for clinical teaching activities. These positions are assigned teaching effort only. Clinical Instructors work collaboratively with the Associate Deans for Graduate & Undergraduate Education, and BSN, MSN, & DNP Program Directors and Coordinators to create a development plan that is tailored to their and the School’s needs and goals related to teaching. Our Clinical Instructors make important contributions to innovative educational and teaching activities to maintain and enhance Emory’s reputation for academic excellence.
Contracts for Clinical Instructors are for either a semester, academic year (two semesters), or calendar year (three semesters), and renewal is based on a performance evaluation at the end of the contract. Preferential appointments are made for those with or pursuing a terminal degree, and those with teaching experience.
A master’s degree in Nursing and eligibility for Georgia licensure (and advanced practice licensure, if appropriate), are required. Because Clinical Instructors interact with students in clinical areas, the School requires the completion of a criminal background investigation, drug screening, and several other compliance requirements prior to their first day of employment. A list of these compliance requirements can be found at http://nursing.emory.edu/audience-guides/faculty-compliance.html. Interested candidates should send: a cover letter describing specific interest in an academic position, clinical and teaching expertise, and summary of accomplishments; current curriculum vitae; and, contact information for three references.
