This College of Technology offers outstanding opportunities in more than 70 majors, where project-based learning and civic engagement are cornerstones of the curricula. When students work on real-world problems, they learn what to think, not how to think, and they learn how to be involved in their community. That is why Alfred State graduates have a 99 percent employment and transfer rate.

 

Job Description:

Alfred State (SUNY) seeks two positions as nursing educators eligible for appointment to a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor rank.  All full time faculty members develop course materials and teach and evaluate students in the classroom, on-campus lab, or clinical facility.  Faculty members also advise students, are active members of departmental and college committees, assist with curriculum development, program assessment, recruiting and promoting nursing, and engage in professional development.

In addition, the newly CCNE-accredited RN-BSN program that is presented on line, is growing rapidly. Alfred is also participating in the New York State APIN (Academic Progression in Nursing) Grant though the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, offering a 1+2+1 program.

Alfred State’s Department of Nursing currently has 10 full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty, two support staff, and a team of clinical adjuncts. The department is housed in a newly renovated, state-of-the-art classroom and laboratory building equipped with 10 computerized simulation mannequins, two of them high fidelity.
