The Clinical Coordinator Faculty position is a full-time, 9-month (August to May) faculty position in the Nursing Department, with an additional 26 contract days to be worked during the summer months to ensure clinical placements and student compliance for the Fall. The additional 26 days are compensated at the daily rate of the individual’s base faculty salary. The Clinical Coordinator secures and coordinates clinical placements for Nursing students at Arapahoe Community College. The Clinical Coordinator negotiates contracts with agency educators about learning lengths of time, clinical scholar requirements, date ranges and clinical student requirements prior to coming to the site. This position also recruits, interviews, and hires clinical instructors who meet the requirements of Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and Colorado State Board of Nursing in collaboration with nursing faculty. This position requires use of an electronic Clinical Platform for most clinical requests and mandates compliance with the platform for both students and instructors.
The Clinical Coordinator also identifies and cultivates healthcare provider partnerships and will help establish and maintain contracts with clinical sites to increase the practicum options available to ACC’s students. This position requires researching possible new sites to obtain additional clinical placements. Contact with nursing directors and educators in combination with site visits to alternative agencies is necessary to determine the acuity level of patients and viability for nursing students.
ACC Faculty teach 15 credits each fall and spring semester. The Clinical Coordinator receives 7.5 credits in the Fall and Spring for administrative clinical coordination duties. Faculty may have the option to teach courses during the summer semester for additional compensation. Courses may be taught using both traditional and non-traditional delivery methods, including face-to-face, online, computer-aided, distance learning, self-paced, and interdisciplinary. Faculty may need to teach at any of our campus locations and at a variety of times (days, evenings, and some weekends).
ACC is committed creating a community of best practices in facilitating teaching, learning, and student success. As such, we seek faculty who will be engaged members of the college community through active service on committees, collaboration with colleagues, and who possess a commitment and passion to facilitating improved outcomes for students and communities the college serves.

We provide a robust offering of professional development opportunities for faculty to strengthen their skills in teaching strategies, outcomes-based practice, and reflective practice. Faculty develop an equity-minded and culturally responsive pedagogy that closes success gaps and fosters a commitment to excellence in education. Candidates with a foundational understanding of these skills and knowledge or a demonstrated growth mindset on these topics are strongly encouraged to apply.
