The College of Nursing at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center seeks exceptional candidates for the new Donna L. Wong Professorship in Nursing Science. The professorship was established in honor of the late Donna Wong, RN, PhD, CPN, FAAN (1948 - 2008), distinguished author of Whaley and Wong's Nursing Care of Infants and Children and co-developer of the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale.
The Donna Wong Professorship will be awarded to a nurse or health related scientist with an earned doctorate and possessing a program of research in child, women, or family-centered research within a life course perspective. Candidates must be tenure-eligible for senior university rank of associate or full professor. The successful candidate will bring a record of past and current extramural funding, a consistent publication history, evidence of strong student and faculty mentorship, graduate teaching experience and a spirit of collaborative teamwork. Applicable licenses must be current and active; applicants must be eligible for licensure in Oklahoma.
The College of Nursing has major interdisciplinary research initiatives aligned with those of the Health Sciences Center. Research partnerships are encouraged between scientists from the Health Science Center's six Colleges and multiple centers. The Donna Wong Professor will be expected to embrace these collaborative initiatives and join us in this exciting trajectory of research. Possible collaborations in research include the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center, Stephenson Cancer Center, Children’s Hospital, Child Study Center, Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatrics and other campus and community agencies that address the health women, children and families.
The College of Nursing is part of The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) in Oklahoma City, the state’s premiere educational resource for health professionals in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, public health and allied health.
