The College of Nursing at the University of Illinois at Chicago is one of the premier nursing schools in the nation, with graduate programs ranked in the top 20 by U.S. News & World Report and a research enterprise ranked in the top 12 for NIH funding among nursing schools. Our mission is to transform health, healthcare and policy through knowledge generation and translation, and through education of future nurse leaders from diverse backgrounds. More than 1,500 students are enrolled in bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs at our six Illinois campuses: Chicago, Peoria, Rockford, Quad Cities, Springfield and Urbana. We count among our outstanding faculty: five members of the Sigma Theta Tau International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame; 27 fellows of the American Academy of Nursing (AAN); and six former deans and professors named “Living Legends” of the AAN.
We invite exceptional and promising nurse leaders to apply for part-time and full-time clinical track faculty positions in the Department of Health Systems Science (HSS), University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), College of Nursing in four areas of concentration: (1) Advanced Population Health Nursing, (2) Health Systems Leadership and Informatics, (3) Family Nurse Practitioner, and (4) Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. The HSS department has Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs in these areas of concentration and is one of three departments in the UIC College of Nursing. Clinical track faculty in HSS advance scholarship on multilevel determinants of health (psychosocial, behavioral, environmental, and systems) and translate this scholarship into practice, care delivery, and policy to improve the health of individuals, families, communities, organizations and populations. Student learning is facilitated by cutting edge educational approaches, e.g. flipped classroom, simulation learning, online learning, as well as traditional face-to-face classrooms.
Advanced Population Health Nursing faculty support student learning and skills in population health assessment, planning and intervention, building community coalitions and translating evidence to practice. Through didactic and clinical experiences, students learn how to transform systems and communities in order to promote health and influence policy. Students are prepared to work with population health issues in community non-profit agencies, faith-based communities, incarcerated populations, schools and universities, military populations, public health departments, and other populations served by community clinics and health care systems. Regardless of the specific community based partnership, we strive to maintain and instill in our students a sense of cultural humility.
Health Systems Leadership and Informatics faculty have a wide range of expertise including: strategic leadership, healthcare quality and safety, information systems and electronic health records, application of nursing standardized languages, health care work environments, health care finance, impact of nursing on patient outcomes, health policy, innovation and entrepreneurialism.
Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner faculty teach in both didactic and clinical aspects of their respective tracks in the DNP program. There are opportunities for faculty practice and scholarship through the Faculty Practice and Community Partnerships in our nurse-managed health center, as well as with clinical partners throughout the Chicago metropolitan area.
We value diversity and demonstrate this commitment through a variety of initiatives. We encourage individuals from historically under-represented groups to apply. Visit our website to learn more about us at: https://nursing.uic.edu/about/academic-departments/health-systems-science/
