Job Summary:

The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District is seeking to fill an Instructor, Nursing Science/Clinical Practice for Chabot College in Hayward, California.

The positions report directly to the Division Dean.

The Chabot College Community

The Chabot Nursing Program has been open for over 50 years and in that time, the college has graduated over two thousand Registered Nurses that are working both locally and across the United States. We proudly boast an NCLEX-RN pass rate of 95-100% for over the last 10 years and were ranked the #1 Program in California in both 2020 and 2021 for the Annual Nursing School Program rankings list by RegisteredNursing.org.

Chabot College is committed to educational equity in its academic programs and college services so that students may achieve their personal, educational, and career goals. Our nursing program acknowledges the structural and systemic racism embedded in our society, education, and healthcare and, in response, we firmly commit to exposing and eradicating racism by reasserting diversity, equity, and inclusion as one of our nursing program’s core values. We pledge to foster a climate that is inclusive and welcoming of all students and faculty and work extremely hard to graduate a strong and compassionate nurse.
Our equity work today builds upon a strong history: the Puente and Umoja programs were first created at Chabot College, and have since been replicated across the state. These programs have paved the way for a series of additional educational and student support programs intentionally focused on equity that thrive at Chabot College today. Chabot College is located in Hayward, California, the third most diverse city in the United States. We serve a highly diverse student population and are proud to be designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution. Information about the demographics of our campus community can be found https://www.chabotcollege.edu/ir/index.asp.

Serving our diverse community requires a culturally-responsive approach that recognizes the myriad strengths and assets that our students bring to the campus community. We do so by promoting a classroom and co-curricular learning environment that is inclusive, collaborative, engaging, and challenging, and where respect, dignity, and integrity are core values. We see students as producers of knowledge, not just consumers of knowledge. We work to reframe inequities as a problem of practice, and view the elimination of inequities as an individual and institutional responsibility.

1. Value and intentionally promote diversity and consciousness of difference
