Tenured/Tenure-Track Assistant/Associate Professor in Nursing

New Jersey City University (NJCU) is a vibrant place to live and learn, with students and faculty from around the world. World-class faculty mentors lead a broad array of high-quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs with small classes on a thriving campus in bustling, cosmopolitan Jersey City.

Located in the New York Metropolitan area, NJCU is 20 minutes by train from Manhattan. The School of Business is located in downtown Jersey City, on the waterfront with stunning views of Manhattan, and there is a southern location at the Jersey Shore in Monmouth County.

NJCU is a dynamic place that embraces a diverse student body with an excellent track record for graduating successful second degree, 1-year accelerated BSN students, and RN to BSN students. We also offer students the option of continuing with nursing graduate study. Our faculty have specialties that enhance the learning experience for all levels of nursing students.

The NJCU Department of Nursing is beginning an exciting period of development and expansion. A new Nursing Education Center at the Jersey City campus is being constructed for spring 2019, and nursing faculty are invited to join this new endeavor. The expansion includes new programs, facilities, and faculty. We are seeking faculty who want to utilize their skills in teaching, curriculum, assessment, advisement, leadership, and service to the university and community.

If you are a CNO or healthcare administrator and are interested in pursuing a career in academia, please consider applying. The Department of Nursing invites applications for full-time tenure and tenure-track faculty appointments at the assistant or associate level commencing September 1, 2018.

Candidates must have a minimum of 2 years’ experience teaching adult health, obstetrics, psychology, and community nursing. A master’s degree in nursing from a professionally and regionally accredited institution and a minimum of five years of professional experience in their clinical specialty is required. A current unencumbered NJ registered nurse license is required. (Out-of-state applicants must apply and receive a New Jersey Registered Nursing license through reciprocity/endorsement in order to be hired.) A current research agenda in progress is required.

An earned doctoral degree is preferred; however, candidates pursuing a doctorate must provide evidence it will be fully completed by the end of the 2018-2019 academic year.

Successful applicants will be expected to teach both basic and advanced courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, develop new programs and course offerings for the nursing department, maintain scholarly engagement in their respective field, and participate in student recruitment, advisement, and service activities at the department, college, university, and community level.

Teaching assignments will be at both the Jersey City and Wall Township locations. Faculty teaching assignments can include day, evening, weekend, and online courses. Candidates should demonstrate evidence of technological competence, working knowledge of student and program assessment, strong leadership, interpersonal and organizational skills, and commitment to diversity among faculty, staff, and students.

For full consideration, applicants should send a letter of application, a current curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, research background, and the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of three references via our online application. For specific application requirements, please refer to the NJCU website at: http://www.njcu.edu/hr/employment/

The search will continue until the positions are filled with full consideration guaranteed to applicants who submit by March 15, 2018.

New Jersey City University is an equal opportunity institution. Applications from women and underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged.
