Upcoming Events 

Due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic the School is unable to conduct on-campus events at this time. We however, would very much like to offer our community hospitals and agencies an opportunity to connect with our students. To that end, if you would like to participate in a virtual information event, please let us know. We will be happy to find a date and time that works best for the population of students you are looking to attract. The School has access to Webex to perform the events, but you can also use your own platforms. To discuss this opportunity or schedule an event, please email

How to Advertise an Open Position

Through the School’s managed job board, email, and via Facebook students and alumni can receive information regarding open position.  To request a job announcement to be advertised, please complete the job posting request form. Through this form you can indicate which group (students, alumni, or both) you would like the job posting to be sent. Most postings will be distributed within 24-48 hours of receiving the request.

Please note that the School reserves the right to deny any request that does not seem credible, valid, or which lacks sufficient information about the position.

On-Campus Recruitment Opportunities

The School of Nursing hosts Career Day several times a year. Career Day is co-sponsored by the School’s Alumni Affairs Office and Alumni Association who conducts job tip presentations and mock-interviews throughout the event. Prospective employers are invited to participate in Career Day to advertise potential job opportunities.
