Job Summary:

The School of Health Studies at the University of the Fraser Valley, located in Chilliwack, British Columbia, invites applications from qualified individuals for four permanent full-time faculty positions in the BSN program commencing August 1, 2023.

The School is seeking collegial, energetic, and innovative individuals who communicate effectively with students in and out of the classroom and who have shown a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Our culturally diverse employee and student populations reflect the local, national, international, and Indigenous communities we serve. The School has a commitment to enhancing faculty and student knowledge of the “In Plain Sight: Addressing Indigenous- Specific Racism and Discrimination in B.C. Health Care” the “UNDRIP declarations on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples” as they pertain to health and health services and the “TRC Calls to Action” #18 through 24 as they pertain to post-secondary education. If you see yourself as a lifelong member of a community that values and nurtures innovation and creativity, cultivates leadership and citizenship, and where success builds on success, you belong at UFV.

UFV's innovative and vibrant Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree offers a four-year program. Nursing faculty teach in the classroom, laboratory and clinical settings and require the flexibility to teach in more than one level of the program. Classroom and laboratory teaching occurs at the Canada Education Park Campus in Chilliwack. Clinical and community experiences occur in hospitals, community settings and health care agencies across the Fraser Health Region.

Given UFV's mandate as a teaching intensive university, the nursing faculty are committed to scholarly and research activities that contribute to an innovative and positive teaching and learning environment. The successful applicant will share the nursing faculty's commitments to anti-racism, decolonization, and indigenization. Concept-based curriculum, simulation learning, and inter-disciplinary initiatives, are ongoing priorities for curriculum integration and development. In addition to teaching responsibilities, nursing faculty participate in scholarship and service contributions within the institution and the broader community.

  • Current BCCNM registration in good standing without limits or conditions, or eligibility for registration with BCCNM prior to start date.
  • Baccalaureate degree in Nursing and a Master of Nursing degree or related field (current enrolment in a Master Program may be considered).
  • Recent clinical experience, preferably in acute care nursing practice.
  • Experience teaching in a nursing program and/or direct supervision in clinical practice.
  • Experience with experiential learning is an asset.
  • About UFV:

    The University of the Fraser Valley is located on the traditional territory of the Halq'eméylem-speaking peoples. We express our gratitude and respect for the honour of living and working in Stó:lo Tém:éxw (Stó:lo Land; Stó:lo World). In all that we do, UFV strives to support and honour the Stó:lo peoples goals of self-determination and well-being on these lands. A commitment to Indigenization and Reconciliation is core to our institutional Vision and Integrated Strategic Plan: IYAQAWTXW — which means House of Transformation. This commitment includes the goal of centering Indigenous ways of knowing throughout our organization, recognizing our responsibilities to community, and a multi-year plan to increase the number of Indigenous faculty, staff, and administrators working at UFV.

    UFV has four campus locations within the beautiful Fraser Valley in British Columbia. Recognized as one of BC's top employers, UFV offers a combination of career and lifestyle benefits. Join a team of 1,400 passionate professionals who value integrity, inclusivity and excellence. At UFV, you will serve a vibrant community, and shape the future of 15,000 students.

    Indigenization, equity, and diversity are essential to our work as a university. A diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been historically underrepresented and marginalized. At UFV, we are committed to recruiting a diverse workforce that represents the community we proudly serve. We encourage applications from Indigenous peoples, members of groups that experience discrimination due to race, colour, place of origin, ancestry, and/or religion, persons who identify as women and 2SLGBTQ+, and persons with disabilities. We invite applicants to complete a confidential self- identification survey as part of the application process. All questions are voluntary, with an option to decline to answer. Information will be used to support efforts to broaden the diversity of the recruitment process, and results are not shared with the selection committee. Inquiries about the survey may be directed to [email protected]. Learn more about our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

    All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. In an effort to be both environmentally and fiscally responsible, UFV will contact only candidates receiving an interview. We thank all applicants for considering UFV for employment. Shortlisted applicants may be required to undergo a criminal record check and/ or a verification of their education credentials.

    UFV is committed to the principle of equity in employment.
