Case Western Reserve University (CWRU or University) invites nominations and applications for the position of Dean of the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing (FPB or School). Established in 1826, CWRU is an independent research university and member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. The FPB School of Nursing is one of seven schools and a college at CWRU.
As FPB approaches its 100th anniversary, it is at an exciting point in its history. It is a globally recognized leader in innovative nursing education, research, and practice. All eight of its eligible specialties in the advanced practice program were ranked by U.S. News & World Report in 2018, with six ranking in the top 20. Over the past five years the School has moved from 37th to 7th on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding list for schools of nursing, and last year secured a record high of nearly $5.6 million in NIH funding. In Summer 2019, the School will be relocating to the brand new $515 million Health Education Campus, a combined project of CWRU and the Cleveland Clinic that will bring together both institutions' health education programs into a combined space.
