The University Of Texas Medical Branch School Of Nursing invites creative, goal directed candidates to join our exceptional faculty in leading edge nursing education.

At the UTMB Health School of Nursing, we are well known for our commitment to innovation, the aptitude of our graduates, and our wonderful history of accomplishments. As pioneers in the field of nursing education, we are proudly the first school of nursing in the State of Texas and the first in the United States west of the Mississippi. We were the first to educate masters degree prepared nurse practitioners in Texas, and the first to offer on-line graduate nursing education.

Our students benefit from the best in clinical experiences via placements throughout the greater Galveston and Houston communities. Additionally, our state of the art Nursing Inter-professional Simulation Center utilizes high fidelity technology to educate our students in the teamwork, critical thinking, and clinical skills crucial to the delivery of modern health care.

UTMB, located just east of historical downtown on Galveston Island, is a world class medical and research facility with a rich history of academic excellence. Notably, our campus provides cutting edge research on infectious diseases and vaccine development through The Galveston National Laboratory, is home to the Sealy Center for Aging, and has been awarded funding through the Clinical Translational Science Awards (CTSA).

Specialty areas include medical/surgical, community and population health, adult & family health, acute & critical care, obstetrics & neonatal health, nursing administration, and nursing education. We are recruiting for the academic ranks of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor, commensurate with the degree and experience. Preferred candidates will have teaching experience at the university level, clinical experience in their specialty area, a program of research and demonstrated leadership skills. An earned doctoral degree from an accredited university is required. Faculty on tenure track should show a strong potential for developing a funded program of scientific research.
