The Director will work in partnership with other programs within the School of Nursing and outside of the School to develop a more collaborative interprofessional, collegial practice for students and faculty.  This individual will also oversee simulation activities for the program which include interprofessional collaboration with surgical specialties from within the health system. 


Individuals who are certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) and are doctorally prepared (DNP, PhD, or EdD) are encouraged to apply to the Practice Assistant Professor position. A sound knowledge of anesthesia practice is required along with the ability to manage curriculum changes that best suits the needs of the student.  This individual must have experience in the development of curriculum, utilization of a sound evaluation process to make changes as deemed necessary, and ability to teach multiple aspects of the anesthesia curriculum, assist, as needed, with other content areas of the program (e.g. Patient safety/health policy).  They must have strong interpersonal skills and leadership attributes, should be actively engaged in clinical practice related to anesthesia, and have the ability to serve as faculty and project lead on Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) related project work.  They must be willing to be innovative in instructional methods of teaching, organizational, and personal interactive skills.  They must have or be eligible to obtain a non-incumbered nursing license in the state of Pennsylvania.
