The Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing is committed to attracting diverse world-class faculty to advance the Schools mission to educate visionary nurse leaders and scholars, generate and apply knowledge, and transform nursing, health, and systems of health care within the local and global community. Full and part time clinical instructors are sought for clinical teaching activities. These positions are assigned teaching effort only. Clinical Instructors work collaboratively with the Associate Deans for Graduate & Undergraduate Education, and BSN, MSN, & DNP Program Directors and Coordinators to create a development plan that is tailored to their and the Schools needs and goals related to teaching. Our Clinical Instructors make important contributions to innovative educational and teaching activities to maintain and enhance Emorys reputation for academic excellence.
Contracts for Clinical Instructors are for either a semester, academic year (two semesters), or calendar year (three semesters), and renewal is based on a performance evaluation at the end of the contract. Preferential appointments are made for those with or pursuing a terminal degree, and those with teaching experience.
