Opening: Clinical Assistant/Associate Professor, Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program.
Looking for an adventure? Looking for an opportunity to make a big impact on rural health? Consider Wyoming, the “Equality State” – the 9th largest and least populated state in the U.S., where health-related scholarship opportunities abound, and faculty can impact clinical practice and policy at the state level and beyond.
The Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing is seeking an innovative individual to join our faculty. Qualified applicants will have a doctoral degree in nursing or a related field. The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) is preferred. If the doctorate is in a related field, the applicant must have a master’s degree in nursing. The applicant must hold national certification as nurse practitioner (family nurse practitioner preferrred) and be eligible for nurse practitioner licensure in Wyoming. The applicant also must have evidence of clinical scholarship trajectory and at least 2 years of practice as a nurse practitioner in primary care practice. Preference will be given to applicants who have teaching experience related to primary care practice.
This clinical track position will involve clinical scholarship, on-campus teaching, online teaching, advanced practice, and academic service. The successful candidate will have a background in clinical scholarship and be able to conduct practice-based scholarship, ideally focused on rural primary care. The faculty member will also advise DNP students and provide service to the school, college, university, state, and profession.
The Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing is CCNE accredited and offers both undergraduate and graduate programs, including a master’s nurse educator program and a DNP program. All programs are focused on nursing roles critical to Wyoming and the region. Our nurse practitioner graduates serve in much needed primary care health settings and many of the counties in Wyoming are classified as health professions shortage areas.
