The School of Nursing is committed to sustaining an inclusive environment that embraces, celebrates, and benefits from the uniqueness of each of our community members. This commitment is based on our belief that the dignity of each human being is to be respected and nurtured. We value each individual’s unique attributes, behaviors and values, recognizing that each of us is influenced by our environment, social norms, cultural values, past experiences, religious beliefs, and life choices. Since we also believe that human beings exist in relation to one another, the emphasis on community building and celebration of differences serves to strengthen our ties to one another.
Through strategic leadership, the past few years have marked a time of unparalleled growth for the Duke University School of Nursing, particularly in its educational offerings. Two doctoral degree programs were established—a PhD program in 2006 and a DNP program in 2008—and recently the ABSN program's student enrollment was significantly increased. DUSON is at the forefront of nursing education, and the recruitment of outstanding individuals to its faculty is paramount to the continued fulfillment of the School's educational priorities and in its mission to advance nursing science and prepare future nursing leaders. We invite the best and brightest educators, practitioners and researchers to consider our faculty opportunities.
The School's Faculty Search Committee considers applications in light of a specific faculty opportunity. All applicants should reference the faculty opportunity that she/he is interested in pursuing in their letter of interest.
