The supportive learning community at Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden seeks out the best and brightest nurse educators to fill faculty positions and conduct innovative research. Our faculty are recognized experts in the fields of study and clinical practice – they are innovative thinkers who translate new knowledge into creative solutions that make an impact. We share our expertise with partners —local and global— to advance well-being and build stronger communities across southern New Jersey, the region, and around the globe.
Social justice is the fundamental, unifying theme that informs our school's strategic direction. We believe a person's zip code should not determine the quality of their health care, and in a free society, access to care—and decision-making regarding one’s care—are basic rights, not privileges. Faculty here engage in hands-on clinical practice and research that explores topics such as as poverty and vulnerable communities; health promotion, prevention, and literacy; access to care; community-based research; and social determinants of health – to name a few. These dedicated mentors work diligently to translate findings into advanced nursing practice, catalyze health care innovation, and promote well-being.
