Capella University seeks out faculty who combine top academic credentials with working or practitioner experience in the fields they teach. Our faculty provide a variety of educational opportunities to our degree and certificate learners. Faculty are responsible for meeting the expectations and requirements of the Capella learner while establishing and maintaining effective relationships. Faculty ensure that learners receive quality educational experiences consistent with stated course outcomes as well as accreditation standards. Capella values the capabilities and talents of its faculty and expects continued learning and development through practice in the discipline or outside scholarly activities.
Primary responsibilities of our faculty include:
- Teaching (online), demonstrating knowledge of adult learning theory and practices, to include learning contracts, collaborative learning, and active learning strategies  
- Building an online community conducive to the spirit of learning and continuous improvement in a positive, learner-focused environment
- Assessing learning through feedback, coaching, and interpersonal skills
- Making a positive impact on learner retention and persistence
- Contributing to curriculum and course development.
- Working with advanced doctoral learners (mentor and committee work)

Other faculty activities may include:
- Faculty staff meetings, Colloquia, Year in Residencies
- Specialized responsibilities or coordinating functions within departments

Key Differences Between Adjunct and Part-Time Faculty:

Part-time faculty engage in a continuous relationship with Capella, and we are committed to providing work assignments on an ongoing quarterly basis.   Only part-time faculty members may participate in Mentoring or Committee work assignments or any other work assignment that may span four or more quarters.

Adjunct faculty members are not engaged with Capella in a continuous relationship.  They are assigned work as they are available and as Capella has needs.

All  faculty candidates will be required to complete an unpaid faculty development course as a pre-requisite for employment.  This is an essential part of the selection process for both the faculty member and Capella.

An earned doctorate degree from a regionally accredited institution is required in Nursing or in an education specialty (i.e. Postsecondary Adult Education, Higher Education Leadership, Instructional Design).  We require an MSN in Nursing from an accredited institution.  Must be licensed as a registered nurse with an active, unrestricted license in the United States.  

-A demonstrated understanding of nursing, including theory, research, and best practices, particularly as they relate to geriatric nursing and gerontology.
- At least 3 years experience working in the geriatric nursing field, in a hospital, clinic or public health setting
- Prefer a CNS (Clinical Nurse Specialist) in gerontology
- Desire 3 years teaching in a relevant educational setting or equivalent expertise applicable to education.  Previous experience as a geriatric nursing educator preferred

- A current, active, unrestricted nursing license is required.
