Why join us?

Edinburgh Napier is one of the largest providers of nursing and midwifery education in Scotland; with a further significant profile across the wider UK and a strong transnational education portfolio. Our provision is unique as we are the only providers of all four fields of nursing education (adult, mental health, learning disabilities and child health) and midwifery at pre-registration level. We are an ambitious School with a clear vision; to have a positive impact on society. We know it is our staff who will deliver that vision and so there are many opportunities for development.

This is an exciting time for us as we begin to develop new pre-registration nursing programmes to meet the new standards published by the NMC (2018). Our new nurse education programmes will be designed for all four fields of practice and will be informed by innovative applied research. For the students that will become registered nurses, Edinburgh Napier University will offer an unrivalled learning experience built on truly innovative programmes.

We are looking for an Associate Professor in Nursing to lead this development.

You’ll create pre-registration programmes of education with a strong application to practice. Moreover, you’ll support your team to foster a collaborative approach from the outset. As such, it’s a role for the kind of educator who will relish the autonomy – and the challenge – of stamping their own authority on the curricula and driving innovation in programme delivery

Working beyond the boundaries of nursing, you’ll take a key role within our multidisciplinary academic community to shape programmes of education, inform impactful research and build strong links with practice. We are keen to speak to candidates with a background in any of the four fields of nursing.
