The Texas A&M University College of Nursing is accepting applications for a full-time strategic hire, tenure‐track or tenured faculty, at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor, depending upon qualifications in Bryan, TX or Round Rock, TX.

The Texas A&M College of Nursing provides a supportive environment for research and strives to expand our interdisciplinary collaboration with many Texas A&M University units, for example, the College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, School of Public Health, College of Engineering and the College of Education and Human Development. The College of Nursing is home to the Texas A&M Health Center of Excellence in Forensic Nursing, earned the number 9 spot in the U.S. News & World Report’s national rankings for best online MSN degree program and was recently re‐designated as a National League for Nursing (NLN) Center of Excellence in Nursing Education in Creating Environments that Enhance Student Learning and Professional Development. Within the last three fiscal years, research funding has more than quadrupled and our clinical partnerships continue to expand, surpassing 350 clinical partner sites across the state of Texas with more than 40 percent of the locations providing care in medically underserved areas.
