The University of Washington Tacoma (UW Tacoma) invites applications for multiple positions in the Nursing and Healthcare Leadership Programs beginning September 16, 2014. Positions are available at the ranks of Assistant Professor (tenure-track) or Associate Professor (typically tenured), Senior Lecturer or Lecturer (non-tenure-track), based on qualifications and interest.
Applicants for tenure track positions must have an earned doctorate (U.S. or foreign equivalent) by the time of appointment, evidence of active scholarship and teaching experience. A Doctorate is preferred for Senior Lecturer or Lecturer but is not a requirement. If the applicant is a licensed professional, she/he must be eligible for licensure in Washington State.
The Bachelor of Arts in Healthcare Leadership (BA HCL) prepares students from diverse professions and backgrounds for careers in leadership positions across a spectrum of healthcare settings, including healthcare organizations, government, and industry. There are plans for the development of a Master’s degree in Healthcare Leadership or a related field.
In addition to the BA HCL program, we offer two nursing degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), and a Master of Nursing (MN). The BSN is designed for learners who are registered nurses. The curriculum supports students in developing professionally. The MN program prepares RNs for practice in a range of settings as leaders, managers, care providers, and educators. Additionally, in collaboration with the Education Program, we offer a Doctorate in Educational Leadership (EdD) that includes a pathway for nurse educators.
Working within a growing, interdisciplinary institution, faculty have the opportunity to develop new nursing and healthcare leadership courses and engage in research.
