College of Nursing Dean

A national search is underway to recruit a recognized nurse scholar with exceptional vision and leadership abilities to become the next Dean for the College of Nursing. The Dean will serve as a visionary for nursing at UNM and guide the execution of the strategic plan to achieve the mission of the College and organization, and will build upon the College’s legacy of excellence as a vital force of nursing education in New Mexico and the rest of the nation. 

As an integral part of the University of New Mexico Health and Health Sciences (UNM HHS) and The University of New Mexico (UNM), the College of Nursing (UNM CON) is committed to providing exemplary and innovative education, research, practice, service, and leadership that improves state, national, and global health. The Dean's key responsibilities will be establishing, fostering, and enhancing partnerships with nurses across the health system to develop new models for education, practice, and research and to collaborate with the greater UNM partners.

This is an unparalleled opportunity for an academic nurse executive to serve as an integral leader at one of the most comprehensive university health and health science complexes in the nation. In addition to advancing the art, science, and practice of nursing through excellence, the Dean will be an important thought-leader in the state of New Mexico in areas pertaining to health care, prevention, and public health. Above all, the Dean will help UNM adapt and thrive in an evolving health care industry and will inspire the organization to deliver its vision of bolstering nursing research and collaborating with community partners to help New Mexico make more progress in health and health equity than any other state.
