Do you have a detailed understanding of nursing, including programme/course delivery, coaching, supervising and assessing learners in university and clinical practice settings? Would you relish a new challenge in an environment that is open, vibrant and welcomes new ideas? Then join the University of East London as Associate Professor in Nursing and you could soon be providing leadership in learning and teaching, knowledge transfer and professional practice that will benefit our students, the School, the University and the wider community alike.
It’s a particularly exciting time at the University as, under our ambitious 10-year strategy, Vision 2028, we’re committed to providing students with the skills necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world. Our nursing programmes have grown dynamically over the last three years and seen the development of new pre-registration nursing courses, as well as a Nursing Associate Programme. We’re truly committed to the future of nursing and involved in creating apprenticeship pathways across both the FdSc and BSc programmes to enhance our widening participation offer. Accordingly, this is a great time to join our enthusiastic team of academics and help shape and influence the development of our growing nursing provision.
As well as providing leadership for nursing courses, we’ll rely on you to carry out core activities in three areas: learning and teaching, knowledge transfer and professional impact; and administration, management, leadership and citizenship. Indeed, your challenge will be to deliver significant higher level achievements in at least two of those areas, while demonstrating national/international impact in your discipline. Taking on other significant School roles, for example managing areas of education, or other important responsibilities aligned with the School’s priorities, will be important too, as will contributing to panels for processes like Fitness to Proceed/Practise or academic appointments. And, when it comes to working closely with the Head of Department for Nursing, academic staff and stakeholders to ensure the effective management and organisation of course delivery for our existing programmes, again, we’ll count on you to deliver.
To succeed, you’ll need a PhD/Masters in a relevant subject, plus current NMC registration and NMC HEA qualification, with evidence of scholarship in the form of recent publications an advantage. Leadership or management experience in a health or social care context in the NHS, independent, voluntary or HEI sectors is essential too, as is an in-depth understanding of assessment and assessment processes, while experience of multi-professional simulation teaching and development would be a plus.
Committed to high quality, reflective and collaborative professional practice in teaching and learning in HE, you’re adept at generating course related reports, writing curriculum development documents and associated papers. What’s more, you’re a firm advocate of patient safety in the context of the preparation of nursing students, understand equality and diversity issues within a diverse and multicultural environment, respond positively and enthusiastically to students and are always looking to champion excellence in the student experience.
So, if you’re looking to further your career in a dynamic, inclusive and performance-focused team and are inspired by our environment and drive for success, apply today.
