The University of Washington Tacoma (UW Tacoma) invites applications for a Senior Lecturer position in the Nursing and Healthcare Leadership Program beginning September 16, 2017.

The Nursing and Healthcare Leadership program offers degrees in nursing and healthcare leadership with a strong focus on addressing diversity and social justice. The program is recruiting colleagues who in their teaching and service demonstrate experience, knowledge, and sensitivity to the needs of culturally diverse and underrepresented racial/ethnic populations and groups. As one of three campuses of the UW School of Nursing the program is accredited by CCNE.

Two nursing degrees are offered: a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and a Master of Nursing (MN). The BSN is designed for learners who are registered nurses (RNs). The MN has two curriculum options: the first option is Leader in Healthcare Delivery. This option provides nurses with in-depth knowledge and skills relating to leading in a constantly changing healthcare environment. The second option is Nurse Educator, which prepares RNs to teach diverse populations in multiple settings. Additionally, a Doctorate in Educational Leadership (EdD) that includes a pathway for nurse educators is offered in collaboration with the School of Education.

Also offered is a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Healthcare Leadership (BA HCL) preparing students from diverse professions and backgrounds for careers in leadership positions across a spectrum of healthcare settings, including healthcare organizations, government, and industry. Preliminary planning has begun for the development of a master’s degree in healthcare leadership or a related field.
