Tenure-track Assistant Professor or Instructor in Nursing

The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, invites applications for two faculty positions, either tenure-track Assistant Professor, or Instructor, in the Swain Department of Nursing (SDN), beginning spring 2023.  Located in beautiful and historic Charleston, S.C., The Citadel is a fully accredited, public, comprehensive, co-educational college with a student body of about 2300 undergraduate students who make up the South Carolina Corps of Cadets and another 1000 students who attend The Citadel Graduate College, a civilian evening and online program that offers graduate and professional degrees as well as undergraduate programs. For the past eleven years, U.S. News and World Report has ranked The Citadel as the top public college in the South among masters granting institutions. 

One of seven departments in the Swain Family School of Science and Mathematics, the SDN offers the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).  The BSN is offered both as a day program to the South Carolina Corps of Cadets and as an evening degree-completion program.  Both programs are taught face-to-face.  Established in 2017, the program supports small class sizes that facilitate personalized learning and direct interaction with students.  The primary role of the nursing faculty is the education of students in the classroom and in the clinical setting.  Faculty members are also responsible for scholarly activity and service. The Citadel supports faculty scholarship and professional development.  Internal funding is available for research, development, and travel.

Medical surgical nursing will be the primary teaching responsibility for one position and OB/pediatrics will be the primary teaching responsibility for the second position. Additional assignments could include fundamentals of nursing, health assessment, public health and practice, nursing delegation, or others as needed. Salary and fringe benefits are competitive.  The contract is a full-time, 9-month position.
