Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences is accepting applications for Nursing Faculty in its Undergraduate Nursing Programs. Openings currently exist in Pediatrics, OB, Med-Surg, and Critical Care.


ABOUT PA COLLEGE

A dynamic and academically rigorous institution, Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences is a private, accredited, four-year college focusing exclusively on the field of health care. In addition to associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs, PA College offers several certificate programs as well as professional development courses for those working in health care. Located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the College attracts a select group of approximately 1,800 students to study with faculty who are experts in their specialty areas. An affiliate of Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, PA College offers a flexible work schedule, collaborative environment, and competitive salary and benefits.

ABOUT THE UNDERGRADUATE NURSING PROGRAMS

Nursing curriculum lays the groundwork for the College’s academic programs. Both pre-licensure undergraduate Nursing Programs, Nursing Associate (ASN) and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), recognize the level of care and compassion it takes to be a nurse. This is reflected in the programs’ low student to faculty ratio within the clinical setting. The ASN and BSN programs offer hands-on learning at the College’s main clinical affiliate, Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, as well as neighboring facilities. Students are exposed to a variety of clinical settings, including medical-surgical, critical care, pediatrics, obstetrics, mental health, community health, physician offices, home health and others, allowing students to learn the area in which they want to specialize. Student learning is also facilitated in the College’s state-of-the-art simulation labs. Experience in the simulation labs allows students the opportunity to witness firsthand a variety of scenarios that they may or may not see in an actual clinical setting.

ACCREDITATION

The ASN Program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and the BSN Programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

THE ROLE OF FACULTY

Faculty provide classroom and/or clinical/laboratory instruction for students including the coordination, preparation and presentation of course materials and the evaluation of student progress.
