Expression of Interest – Casual Clinical Rotations, Nursing Program


The CBU Nursing Program has opportunities for qualified nurses to instruct BScN students in nursing practice placements and/or university lab settings. Presently, there is a need for Mental Health, Pediatrics, Community, and Obstetrics as well as Medical/Surgical areas.

Clinical rotations consist of a 4 hour research afternoon and an 8 hour clinical experience the following day. These rotations can be days and/or evenings for 6 or 12 weeks.

Applicants must have an active practicing RN licence. A PhD or Master’s degree is preferred, but consideration will also be given to applicants with a BScN with 5 years’ experience and/or specialty certifications.

Qualified candidates should send:

  • a letter of application quoting the reference number (NUR1701) and indicating clinical and teaching experience;
  • a resume; and
  • complete contact information of three references
