The nursing programs at Northern Arizona University have achieved statewide recognition through a unique educational focus on rural health care, partnerships with community college nursing programs, and leadership using distance technologies. Programs are geared at increasing access to nursing education at both the graduate and undergraduate levels for students in rural communities. Currently, the School of Nursing has distinct options for students seeking baccalaureate, masters and doctoral (DNP) degrees in nursing. Options include a traditional pre-licensure four (4) year option, a twelve-month accelerated BSN option, an RN to BSN option, a concurrent enrollment program partnering with Community Colleges across urban and rural Arizona, and a Personalized Learning Program. We offer the traditional pre-licensure option at a site on the Navajo Nation in Fort Defiance, Arizona, Tucson, and Yuma as well as the main campus in Flagstaff. Our graduate programs are offered in an online format and include a DNP, general master of science in nursing, or a master of science nurse practitioner track.

The faculty member will be responsible for teaching theory and clinical courses in the undergraduate program, including but not limited to a concentration in medical surgical nursing or Peds/OB.
Additionally, this position is eligible to be assigned as the Tucson campus coordinator for NAU’s School of Nursing program. The campus coordinator role is an administrative assignment in addition to the faculty role.
The faculty member is also expected to serve on school committees and advise students.
Must be willing to travel to distant sites.
