In addition to those qualifications listed in the University Faculty Handbook, the potential candidate for a faculty position must meet the criteria for faculty rank as listed in the School of Nursing rank and tenure document.
Primary & secondary appointments
Faculty are given a primary faculty appointment in the School of Nursing and in a designated clinical area. Faculty with a primary appointment in another school of the University may have a secondary appointment in the School. School of Nursing faculty teaching at the graduate level may have a secondary appointment to the Graduate School as a regular, associate, or clinical graduate faculty depending on their level of involvement.
A recommendation for appointment is made by the Associate Dean of the graduate or undergraduate program in writing to the dean. All new faculty are given a one year appointment.
Most faculty are given an academic year (ten month per year) appointment. Calendar year appointments (12 months per year) are given to those who teach a summer course or continue full-time research during the summer. Faculty wishing a calendar year appointment to continue a research project must submit a request in writing to the dean before the end of the winter quarter.
The awarding of tenure by the School of Nursing is subject to the University tenure policy. To apply for tenure, follow the process outlined in the Instructions for Preparing a Portfolio section of the School of Nursing Faculty Handbook Supplement.
The nursing faculty member must provide evidence to the promotion committee of meeting the specific criteria listed under the Criteria for Promotion in Academic Rank section of the School of Nursing Faculty Handbook Supplement.
