About the School of Health Sciences/Lydia Green Nursing Program
The Lydia Green Nursing Program is a part of the School of Health Sciences and includes a vibrant undergraduate BSN program and graduate programs leading to a doctor of nursing practice (DNP). Graduate nursing specialty pathways for the DNP include advanced practice (FNP, and AGNP). The program is highly regarded by the surrounding regional healthcare community. Each of our nursing programs is approved by the Washington State Nursing Quality Assurance Commission and fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
We are looking for a highly qualified faculty member for classroom and clinical teaching in our concept-based, pre-licensure BSN curriculum. We welcome applicants from all specialty backgrounds but especially those with experience and expertise in the areas of adult health and illness, particularly acute care.

- Unencumbered license as a Registered Nurse (RN) in the State of Washington by September 1, 2022 (or start date).
- Board certification in a clinical specialty or nursing education is desirable, but not required.

The School of Health Sciences is committed to an intentional and sustained school-wide effort to hire and support a diverse faculty. We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing men and minorities who are underrepresented in nursing higher education and careers (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background), and who have experience in equity and diversity with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, life experiences, or service. At Seattle Pacific University, 40% of students are persons of color, and a significant number are first-generation college students (see student profile). Thus, applicants who can demonstrate effective mentoring of students from underrepresented backgrounds are especially welcomed.
