Clinically-Based Faculty

The Ingram School of Nursing (ISoN) counts on the essential contributions of our clinically based faculty members, who are also known as nil-salary appointees or members of the Contract Academic Staff of the University. These nurses are employed in clinical practice settings as administrators, researchers and clinicians. They take on various roles at the School without remuneration, making a major contribution to the mandates of education, research, and service at the Ingram School of Nursing. Clinically based faculty members help provide the experiential learning environments for our students, and they engage, support, and facilitate in nursing. They promote the use and dissemination of research findings in practice; further the development of nursing knowledge and the profession through the delivery of evidence based nursing practice. They work collaboratively with other health professionals, administrators and policy makers to enhance the quality of health services; and develop and promote organizational structures and cultures that allow the goals of academic nursing to be achieved.

In order to become a clinically-based faculty member at ISoN, individuals are assessed in the following categories of academic duties:

1) teaching (direct and indirect);

2) research and other scholarly or professional activity and

3) other service contributions to the University and scholarly community

More specifically, clinically based faculty members contribute directly and/or indirectly to ISoN’s undergraduate and graduate programs in some of the following ways:

  • Involvement in student learning on an on-going basis;
  • Facilitating the on-going development of exemplary learning environments;
  • Supporting, promoting and defending the development of organizational structures and cultures that support the educational programs and student learning;
  • Participating in course revision and course evaluation;
  • Sharing clinical expertise at ISoN
  • Engaging in research;
  • Promoting the creation of administrative structures, mechanisms, and resources necessary for academic nursing;
  • Developing the necessary strategies to defend, promote, and advocate for academic nursing.
