Job Description/Responsibilities
The School of Nursing at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) is seeking candidates for a full-time, tenure-track nursing faculty position. SIUE is classified by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education as a Doctoral/Professional University, and as such, our institution is dedicated to exemplary student instruction. As a tenure track faculty in the School of Nursing, there is an expectation to demonstrate competent teaching across the curriculum, including in didactic, clinical, and online settings and in our graduate and/or undergraduate programs. Additionally, tenure track faculty are expected to maintain a program of scholarship relevant to the practice of nursing, the nursing profession, and/or the education of nurses and to engage in service to the School of Nursing and other constituencies relevant to the mission of the organization. 

The School of Nursing faculty and staff educate, empower, and support diverse learners to achieve excellence in nursing. Through this mission statement, the faculty in the School of Nursing share the collective vision to educate and develop nurses as care providers, scholars, and leaders able to meet the health challenges of a diverse and complex world. 

In support of our mission, we take full advantage of our central location between rural Illinois and Metropolitan Saint Louis and offer a diverse range of clinical learning opportunities for students. A significant point of pride for our school is the SIUE WeCare clinic, located on the East Saint Louis campus just 25 miles from SIUE's main campus. The clinic offers a full range of services to patients in a historically undeserved area. The clinic exemplifies our mission and its commitment to health equity, diversity and community engagement. Other points of pride are the innovative teaching strategies that have received local, state, and national scholar recognition through grants and awards. Since 2012, the School of Nursing faculty has been involved in research and program grant funding totaling nearly 4.5 million dollars.  Funding support for faculty research has included prestigious sources such as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – Health Resources and Services Administration, National Institutes of Health, Illinois Board of Higher Education, Illinois Department of Public Health, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Archdiocese of St. Louis, and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists. 

The SIUE School of Nursing offers an energetic, forward-thinking, supportive environment for faculty to grow and practice to the full extent of their educational and licensing credentials. We look forward to welcoming new faculty who are driven, dedicated, and prepared to work collaboratively to provide high-level and diverse learning experiences for our students and community.
