Job Description:
Genesee Community College is seeking an Instructor to join our Nursing faculty.

We encourage you to apply if you are a motivated educator with excellent teaching and mentoring skills and are committed to student's success in meeting all course learning outcomes.

As a program within the Division of Math, Science and Career Education the Nursing program is aligned with our competitive health care programs. This program has over 200 students enrolled annually. The small student to teacher ratio provides for a highly personal teaching and learning experience.

Our faculty obligation of nine months per year (168 days) provides flexibility for service in other practice areas as well as a healthy work-life balance. By joining the faculty at GCC you will be eligible to participate in the NY State Retirement System. We offer generous paid time off, with several paid holidays per year, and sick time that includes time necessary for a family member's illness. You may also be eligible for Public Service Loan Forgiveness. Professional activity days at the beginning of each semester allow you to develop professionally and provides time to complete prep work prior to the start of classes.

Our graduates earn an Associate's in Applied Science and are prepared to pass the national R.N. licensing examination. Our Nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). This program combines nursing theory with a variety of real-world clinical experiences in rural, community and tertiary healthcare systems. Unique to associate degree programs in WNY, the final semester includes a four-week capstone experience with an RN preceptor in one of our affiliated health care settings. We also have an Advanced Placement program for LPN to RN students. Our Nursing program has an NCLEX pass rate that is well above both the New York State and National averages.

The Antoinette Marchese Clancy School of Nursing is a state-of-the-art facility where instructors utilize up to date simulation technology and manikins, organized and well equipped skills labs and Hyflex video conferencing in each of our classrooms.

Our Nursing classes are all offered in a hybrid (combination classroom and online) format. This position teaches both didactic and clinical based on a team-teaching model with experienced faculty. You can look forward to teaching fundamentals in your first semester, with the opportunity to serve as course coordinator and a mentor for adjunct instructors in the future.
