Job Summary
The School of Nursing & Health Professions at the University of San Francisco invites nominations and applications for a full-time faculty member in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program. The school has a vibrant baccalaureate program that is one of the few programs on the West Coast to admit students as freshmen. As a result, the undergraduate students in the nursing major are among the very best at the university.

Graduate programs include the MSN with a Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) focus and the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. The master's program has both an entry-into-practice option as well as one for RNs. Programming for the MSN is offered at the USF regional campuses and several clinical partners in addition to the San Francisco campus. The MSN graduates are making meaningful contributions to healthcare advances in the Bay Area.

The DNP at USF was the first in California and received CCNE accreditation in fall 2009. DNP graduates have assumed significant leadership roles across both nursing and healthcare, and our Executive Leadership DNP program promises to extend that scope and range. The program has post-baccalaureate and post-masters' options and prepares both APRNs and health care systems leaders.

Job Responsibilities
Successful candidates will be expected to engage in classroom and clinical teaching, scholarship, and service that will contribute to the university and profession.

A doctoral degree in nursing or related area is required. Program administration experience desirable. The appointment will be made at a rank commensurate with qualifications. Upon hire, the faculty member must be licensed as a registered nurse in California. Candidates should demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching and scholarship, experience and willingness to work in a culturally diverse environment and an understanding of and commitment to support the mission of the University.
