CBU and Acadia are partnering to implement a new Nursing Program at Acadia.

Together, we are seeking progressive, energetic candidates with a commitment to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and research. The primary position responsibility will be to teach our concept-based curriculum to undergraduate nursing students. These positions are primarily located on campus at Acadia University.

Successful candidates will have:

  • An undergraduate/graduate degree in nursing (i.e. BScN, MN);
  • A completed PhD or other Doctoral degree in a health-related field (preferred) or education; Master’s prepared applicants with a willingness to complete a Doctoral degree in progress will be considered;
  • A minimum of five years’ experience as a Registered Nurse;
  • An active practicing unrestricted RN license with the Nova Scotia College of Nursing (or be eligible for) prior to commencement of this position;
  • Demonstrated excellence in teaching and mentoring students;
  • A commitment to nursing scholarship and research;
  • Experience in theory-based classroom teaching.

We welcome those who would contribute to the further diversification of our staff, our faculty and its scholarship including, but not limited to, women, visible minorities, Indigenous peoples, African Nova Scotians, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity.
