Job description


Graduate Programs Director (Open Rank Non-Tenure Track Faculty)

Temple University Department of Nursing invites applications for a non-tenure track, full-time calendar-year faculty position at the academic rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor to direct the department’s graduate programs, which currently include a post baccalaureate and post-masters Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. Expansion of graduate program offerings is anticipated and will include additional DNP specialties, along with planning and implementing a masters direct entry program for non-nursing college graduates.

At Temple University Nursing, we aspire to provide excellence in academic programming that is responsive to the health needs of individuals and populations, within the context of community and are committed to the highest level of caregiving that is prevention-oriented, evidence-based and provided in collaboration with the community and other professions and disciplines.  

Qualified applicants will hold a master's degree in nursing, an earned doctorate in nursing or related field and be a nationally certified advanced practice nurse who is eligible for licensure as a registered nurse in Pennsylvania. Candidates of particular interest will have demonstrated leadership experience; familiarity with development, implementation and evaluation of innovative teaching and learning strategies in classroom, clinical and community settings; involvement with student recruitment, retention and progression; and active engagement in development of community and professional partnerships. We seek individuals who share our vision to be a leading force in community-engaged, collaborative efforts to achieve health equity and a quality life for all. Rank is open (assistant, associate, full professor) and depends on combined professional nursing and academic experience.

The Department of Nursing enrolls nearly 500 students and offers two accredited programs. Our 8-semester, 4-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, with freshmen admission is recognized for its high NCLEX pass rate, clinical affiliations with some of the best health care facilities in the Philadelphia area and an innovative five-semester ‘community home’ rotation with a population-based, service-learning focus. Our Doctor of Nursing Practice program includes a post baccalaureate option and two specialty concentrations: Adult-Gerontology Primary Care and Family-Individual across the Lifespan. A post master’s option prepares graduates for practice leadership roles in a variety of health care settings.

The College. The Department of Nursing is one of nine academic units that comprise the College of Public Health, a multidisciplinary academic center devoted to an innovative educational and research environment informed by a transdisciplinary perspective on health, wellness and social welfare. Enrolling 4,600 students in 8 undergraduate and 28 graduate degree programs, the College, recently accredited by the Council on Education in Public Health as a school of public health,  has seen remarkable growth and organizational expansion in configuration of programs, research profile, increase in rankings, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Nursing is an active participant in the College’s research portfolio that includes behavioral, social and environmental inquiries, medical interventions, and basic science, with particular strength and emphasis in the areas of obesity, cancer, HIV/AIDS, mental health, substance abuse/addiction, aging, and chronic disease prevention.
