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.

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.
