Director of the School of Nursing


Norwich University invites nominations and expressions of interest in the directorship of the School of Nursing. The program, accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), was elevated in July of 2012 from a department to a school and combined with three others to form the College of Professional Schools.

Founded in 1819 as the first private military college in the United States, Norwich University is the birthplace of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) and the first college in the country to offer engineering studies. Today, the Norwich campus educates 2,300 residential undergraduate students, 70% cadets and 30% civilians, and 1,500 online graduate students. The culture is one of integrity, loyalty, and respect for self, for others, and for the uniform and all that it symbolizes. Norwich University is noted for its academic excellence, strong endowment, and fiscal health.

The university is deeply committed to its nursing programs, having recently invested in its state-of-the-art facilities. NCLEX pass rates were 100% in 2011 and 97% in 2012.

S/he will have a commitment to the institution’s mission and goals, and the knowledge to lead a clinical program.
