Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Nursing

The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, invites applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Swain Department of Nursing (SDN), beginning fall 2024.  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 twelve 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.

Behavioral Health is the primary teaching responsibility for this position; teaching responsibilities may also include other nursing courses that are part of the required content for a baccalaureate-prepared nurse.  In addition to teaching, the Assistant Professor role includes responsibilities in the areas of scholarship and service.  Salary and fringe benefits are competitive.  The contract is a full-time, 9-month position.
