The Role
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a clinically credible academic to join the School of Nursing’s Workforce Development teaching team. We are seeking to appoint a well-networked, experienced ACP academic who is immersed in the rapidly developing area of advanced clinical practice and capable of developing this field as a flagship area within the School’s CPD provision.

The launch our new MSc Advanced Clinical Practice programme in September 2022 (subject to validation) will be an important, high-profile addition to our post-qualifying prospectus. As the successful postholder, you will raise the School’s ACP profile, engaging with external education commissioners and prospective students, to establish the Kingston University ACP brand as the programme of choice across London and Surrey. You will also provide robust course leadership for the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice programme, promoting innovative learning and teaching strategies. You will teach on the programme and other programmes, taking the lead on modules where appropriate.

The Person
You are likely to be an experienced advanced clinical practitioner with a high level of clinical competence, along with a detailed understanding of local and national advanced clinical practice initiatives. You will have a keen interest in developing innovative education programmes and have an ability to inspire students.

You may have a proven track record of innovation in teaching supported by a teaching qualification, such as the UKPSF2 or PGCHE. Alternatively, you may be a highly qualified and credible advanced practitioner or practice educator keen to consolidate a career in higher education. You’ll have current NMC/professional body registration and a minimum of a Master’s degree in nursing/healthcare and proven physical assessment/clinical reasoning skills. A recognised non-medical prescribing qualification would be an advantage.

The School
The School of Nursing is a place of innovators and early adopters – people passionate about collaboration, practical outputs and lifelong learning. But most of all we’re a group driven to create nursing associates, nurses and a nursing profession that will make a lasting impact throughout the 21st Century. We’re a school that works with academic colleagues in other schools, faculties and professions to deliver rich learning experiences, access to world-class research and industry-leading work for nursing and the care professions.
