  • Location: CBU
  • Competition Number: F053P
  • Deadline: April 18, 2022 at 11:59 pm

The School of Nursing at CBU invites applications for full-time Nursing Practice Educators – African Nova Scotians.  These positions will commence in January/February 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. We are looking to continue to build upon our talent in our expanding Nursing Department and are searching for multiple talented individuals who have real passion for making an impact in their field. As long as this posting is still online it means we are still growing, so don’t wait and apply today as review of applications will commence mid November 2021.

The School is committed to promoting experienced, professionally educated African Nova Scotian nurses. Nursing education at CBU reflects the values of culturally safe care and we support the delivery of meaningful, respectful, and effective care. This commitment includes recruitment of African Nova Scotian nurse educators to share knowledge, mentorship, expertise, skills, advice, and leadership to help realize the university’s stated goal toward establishing an inclusive, welcoming, and equitable working and learning environment at CBU.

The School invites applications from interested African Nova Scotian nurses who are passionate about educating the next generation of nurses. We are seeking progressive, energetic candidates with a commitment to excellence in nursing practice education. The primary position responsibility will be to instruct, supervise, and evaluate nursing students in a variety of nursing practice settings including acute care, long term care, community, as well as on-campus nursing simulation, and/or laboratory instruction. There will be opportunities to teach or co-teach the concept-based curriculum with other nursing faculty in a supportive environment.

Successful candidates will have:

  • a degree in Nursing (BScN or BN);
  • bachelor’s prepared applicants with a willingness to complete a master’s degree will be considered. Professional development funding assistance may be available to support study;
  • a minimum of five years of nursing practice experience;
  • an active practicing RN license with the Nova Scotia College of Nursing (or be eligible for) prior to commencement of this position; and
  • experience teaching, mentoring, and/or preceptoring nursing students would be an asset.

CBU teaches programs on campus, off campus in locations across and outside of Canada, and on-line. The university and its partners will therefore provide opportunities for faculty members to teach in different modes in different locations as part of their regular workload. While these opportunities may not be available equally for all faculty positions in all programs, a clear willingness to teach in different modes and locations will be noted as part of your application.
