Director, Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program
UCSF School of Nursing seeks a Director for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program. This full- time faculty position provides overall leadership for the program and its students, and directs the administrative aspects of the program. In the administrative role of Director, s/he reports to the Associate Dean for Academic Programs and serves as part of the School's academic program leadership team. This search will be managed by the School of Nursing, Dean's Office. The candidate will be appointed to one of the School of Nursing's departments. Departmental affiliation will be based on her/his area of expertise.
In addition to the administrative oversight of the program, the Director will participate in other aspects of the faculty role, including teaching, scholarship, clinical service, and community service.
The DNP degree is one of three degrees offered at the School of Nursing: the MS, PhD and DNP. A small group of pre-licensure students is admitted annually to an accelerated curriculum in nursing and articulated into a specialty area in the master's program following licensure. As an all-graduate institution, the School has been focused on preparing leaders for careers in clinical care, knowledge development, and as educators. The DNP, UCSF's newest degree, prepares leaders in implementation science who develop, evaluate and disseminate the results of evidence-based interventions that improve health care outcomes and health care systems.
The UCSF DNP Program accepted its first student cohort in spring 2018 and completed its initial CCNE site visit in September 2019. As initially implemented, the curriculum of this post-masters practice-focused doctorate develops nurses' knowledge and skills to achieve competencies for advanced nursing roles in direct and indirect patient and population health. It uses a combination of online and face-to-face delivery approaches and builds on previously acquired clinical, research, leadership and policy expertise.
