The department of Nursing at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) is seeking a tenure-track faculty member at the rank of Assistant Professor.
Experience and research (or potential for research) in Maternal Health, Pediatrics or Behavioral Health Nursing is strongly preferred.
In addition to teaching, the position requires weekly office hours, attending faculty meetings, and service to the department, college, and university. The successful candidate will be held to the standards and requirements of the college and department in which he/she/they is/are housed for recommending tenure and promotion.
As a Hispanic-serving Institution (HSI), inclusiveness and diversity are integral to CSUN’s commitment to excellence in teaching, research, and engagement. As of Fall 2020, CSUN enrolls ~40,000 students, where 56% are Latinx, 20.8% are White, 9.3% are Asian American, 4.8% are Black/African American, 0.1% are Native American, and 0.1% are Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. The successful candidate will help the Department achieve equitable outcomes for all students through teaching, student mentorship, scholarship, and service.
Applicants must possess a doctorate in Nursing or closely related field of study from an accredited institution. ABD candidates will be considered, but must have completed the doctorate before the time of appointment. Applicants must demonstrate the potential to teach, conduct research, engage in scholarly and creative activities, and provide leadership. Applicants must have an unencumbered CA RN license or the ability to obtain such by the time of appointment.

Primary teaching responsibilities include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in Nursing. The typical teaching load is 12 units per semester. Faculty have additional responsibilities such as: student advisement; review of applications; maintaining an active program of scholarly research and publication; service on department, college, and university committees as appropriate. The successful candidate may be required to teach on weekdays, evenings, weekends and on-line. In the Department of Nursing, many technologies are used. Many courses contain an online component, and some lecture courses are entirely web-based. Applicants must possess the willingness to adapt their teaching strategies accordingly to meet the diverse needs of students. Because clinical placement is variable, direct supervision of students in the community or an agency setting may occur at any time of the day, and on any day of the week. Clinical shifts may exceed eight hours. Applicants should be prepared to have teaching assignments or committee commitments four or five days a week. The successful candidate will work closely with other nursing faculty in the department and university.
