Chair, Nursing Program


Description: 
 
Catawba College invites applications for the chair of its inaugural nursing program. The chair will provide innovative and dynamic leadership to develop a nursing initiative, beginning with the RN-to-BSN program, that blends the knowledge and competencies of liberal studies with career preparation. Future opportunities to expand offerings in this area are expected. 

Catawba College provides an education that focuses on an institutional philosophy of a liberal education, which entails a broad range of knowledge, intellectual and practical skills, and individual and social responsibility fostered and developed in all academic programs, including general education and majors, and from the freshman to senior years.

In creating and overseeing the development of the nursing initiative, Catawba seeks a leader who can utilize the principles of a recent American Association of Colleges of Nursing report on the essentials of baccalaureate education for professional nursing practice, which advocates a base of “liberal education” to provide the distinguishing cornerstone for the study and practice of professional nursing.

  • Demonstrated excellence in teaching and nursing education administration.
  • Knowledge of the North Carolina Board of Nursing rules, regulations, and educational standards.

Responsibilities include:

  • Develop, implement, and evaluate the curriculum for the nursing program.
  • Prepare course schedules, and arrange for clinical experiences for students
  • Manage budget and personnel
  • Develop clinical partnerships with local and regional health care providers.
  • Assist in community outreach and fundraising
  • Assist in recruitment of students into the program
  • Provide excellence in teaching and advisement of students

  • Ensure that the program meets accreditation standards and prepare reports required by accrediting agency.
  • Develop a strategic plan (consistent with the College’s Strategic Plan) for growth and advancement of the Nursing program and addition of new degree programs.

Applications will only be accepted electronically and should include the following as a single PDF file: (1) cover letter that describes qualifications to serve as the founding chair of the Nursing Program, (2) CV/resume, (3) statement of philosophy of nursing education, and (4) contact information for three professional references.   Electronic applications and inquiries should be sent to Dr. Constance Rogers-Lowery clowery@catawba.edu.  Review of application will begin immediately and the priority deadline is October 1, 2014.  Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.  The College strongly encourages applications from individuals from underrepresented groups.
