Associate Degree Nursing
ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS OF POSITION:
Santa Barbara City College is seeking three full-time, tenure track faculty member positions in the Associate Degree in Nursing Program to start in Fall 2022. In 2009, SBCC was designated as an Hispanic-Serving Institution, reflecting our responsibility to support and serve the needs of our Latina/o/x students. Moreover, given our overall student population, the ideal candidate will demonstrate a commitment to join a department that is dedicated to the use of curriculum and pedagogy that shares SBCC's commitment to educating its racially and socioeconomically diverse post-traditional student population.
Commencing Fall 2022, three full-time tenure-track faculty positions will be available in the Associate Degree in Nursing Program. Responsibilities include teaching nursing theory, instructing students in the Allied Health and Nursing Laboratory and the clinical area; participation in planning and scheduling; assisting in curriculum development, implementation, and evaluation; participation in faculty meetings and assistance in meeting applicable accreditation requirements and preparing program, state, and regional accreditation documentation, studies, and reports. Other responsibilities include maintenance of office hours sufficient to meet student needs and college policy, full participation in departmental responsibilities, college service (such as committee assignments, co-curricular activities), and involvement in activities designed to improve teaching. The integration of technology into the instructional process will be expected. Weekend and evening clinical may be required. This is a full-time position and the right applicant will commit the time necessary to ensure the success of the ADN Program and students.
SALARY & PERSONNEL BENEFITS:
The current salary schedule range for an entering tenure-track faculty member is $60,856 - $95,406 plus an earned doctoral bonus of $3,042.80.
