We invite exceptional and promising nurse leaders to apply for part-time and full-time clinical track faculty positions in the Department of Population Health Nursing Science (Population Health), University of Illinois Chicago (UIC), College of Nursing in four areas of concentration:
Population Health has Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs in these areas of concentration and is one of three departments in the UIC College of Nursing. Clinical track faculty in Population Health advance scholarship on multilevel determinants of health (psychosocial, behavioral, environmental, and systems) and translate this scholarship into practice, care delivery, and policy to improve the health of individuals, families, communities, organizations, and populations. Student learning is facilitated by cutting edge educational approaches, e.g. flipped classroom, simulation learning, online learning, as well as traditional face-to-face classrooms.
Advanced Population Health Nursing faculty support student learning and skills in population health assessment, planning and intervention, building community coalitions and translating evidence to practice. Through didactic and clinical experiences, students learn how to transform systems and communities to promote health and influence policy. Students are prepared to work with population health issues in community non-profit agencies, faith-based communities, incarcerated populations, schools and universities, military populations, public health departments, and other populations served by community clinics and health care systems. Regardless of the specific community-based partnership, we strive to maintain and instill in our students a sense of cultural humility. Health Systems Leadership faculty have a wide range of expertise including: strategic leadership, healthcare quality and safety, information systems and electronic health records, application of nursing standardized languages, health care work environments, health care finance, impact of nursing on patient outcomes, health policy, innovation and entrepreneurialism.
Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner faculty teach in both didactic and clinical aspects of their respective tracks in the DNP program. There are opportunities for faculty practice and scholarship through the Faculty Practice and Community Partnerships in our nurse-managed health center, as well as with clinical partners throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. We value diversity and demonstrate this commitment through a variety of initiatives. We encourage individuals from historically under-represented groups to apply.
