About the Department

About the School:

The School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota was established in 1909, and is distinct in being the first continuing nursing program on a university campus. We offer prelicensure baccalaureate (Twin Cities and Rochester campuses) and masters programs and doctoral (PhD and DNP) education. Based on expertise and interest, faculty will join one of three established areas of scholarship and teaching: (1) Adult and Gerontological Health, (2) Child and Family Health, or (3) Population Health and Systems.

As an integral part of the University of Minnesota, our school provides a rich and stimulating research environment. Current research efforts encompass an array of topics, including health promotion, symptom and self-management of chronic and acute health conditions, interventions for individuals and families across the life span and vulnerable populations, health/nursing informatics and data science. The University's culture strongly supports collaboration with renowned scholars in departments and disciplines across the campus and with industry partners. The school's mission is to generate and disseminate to students, colleagues, the wider community, and the world, knowledge necessary for improving the health of individuals, families, and populations. The school supports several nationally prominent centers, including the Center for Child and Family Health Promotion, Center for Aging Science and Innovation, and the Katharine J. Densford International Center for Nursing Leadership. The School of Nursing is committed to improving planetary health, and to ensuring that nursing is visible and recognized for our profession's historical contributions and alignment with planetary health.

The School of Nursing welcomes and affirms all, and embraces the equity and diversity commitment of the University of Minnesota, as reflected in our Strategies and Plans for Anti-racism. The School of Nursing especially seeks candidates whose research/scholarship, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to inclusivity, diversity and equity in higher education. The School of Nursing is committed to recruiting, mentoring and retaining faculty with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences, and those with a record of research/scholarship and/or experience teaching and mentoring students from groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education. We recognize that faculty applicants from historically disadvantaged groups may have faced barriers to opportunities that prepare individuals for academia, and we are therefore committed to a holistic evaluation of all applicants for this position.
