Adjunct & Clinical Faculty Appointments

UH Manoa Nursing welcomes clinical (adjunct) faculty to assist in preparing nursing students to meet the healthcare needs of our community. These volunteer positions do not receive monetary compensation. 
 
What are the benefits of adjunct and clinical faculty status?
 
Being an adjunct or clinical faculty member allows you to contribute to the education and preparation of the next generation of nurse leaders.  Your status  will provide you with opportunities to collaborate with other faculty members on manuscripts and proposals, access to students interested in working on efforts that support clinical and evidence based practice, and access to University library and resources through a UH username and ID card.
 
What are the categories of adjunct and clinical faculty status?
 
A volunteer faculty member is identified as an adjunct or clinical instructor, assistant professor, associate professor or full professor. Requirements for the level are based on the University’s criteria. The minimum requirement is a Master’s Degree. 
 
What is expected of adjunct and clinical faculty?
 
Adjunct and clinical faculty are expected to contribute expertise by participating in school activities including guest teaching in a class, precepting students,  committee work, and involvement with the UH Translational Health Science Simulation Center.  
 
Once appointed, your appointment will be renewed annually for three years.  After three years, you will need to resubmit a full application, including an updated resume/CV.  This tri­annual process ensures that we pay adequate attention to the educational and professional activities you may have undertaken in the prior three years that may change your  rank. The School will provide reminders for renewal deadlines.
 
How to apply:
 
Complete the online application and submit it with a current resume or CV to Ashley Spencer at: aes@hawaii.edu 
 
Notification
 
After you submit your application, resume/CV, and TB clearance to our office, we will confirm receipt and notify you upon completion of review.
