Faculty members are academically and experientially qualified and maintain expertise appropriate to their teaching, service and scholarly responsibilities. Each faculty member meets the requirements of the California Board of Registered Nursing and the San Diego Community College District for his/her discipline.
Each full-time nursing faculty member has a Master's Degree in Nursing from an accredited institution of higher learning. Faculty members prepared at the master's level are responsible for both theoretical and clinical instruction. All faculty members engage in the teaching and supervision of students in the clinical setting, thus keeping current in their field of expertise. Faculty members also participate in professional associations, organizations and scholarly activities that enrich them personally and professionally. Individual expertise is shared with students and other nursing faculty. Each faculty member has an identified area of expertise and maintains their professional competence by regularly attending discipline-related conferences and seminars, completing advanced coursework at other academic institutions and/or working per diem in a variety of health care agencies. Adjunct (part-time) faculty are also academically and clinically prepared. Adjunct faculty supervise students in the clinical area, either on a substitute or short-term basis, and work collaboratively with full-time faculty.
