Chamberlain University is pleased to announce new part time teaching opportunities in the Microbiology discipline at our campus in Sacramento. Join us as we educate and empower extraordinary healthcare professionals who transform healthcare worldwide!

Do you remember the professor who encouraged you to believe in yourself and in your ability to be the successful professional you are today? Now you have the unique opportunity to be that professor, to create the "a-ha" moment of sudden insight and comprehension that will change a nursing student's life forever. As part of our faculty team, you'll inspire our motivated students to realize their educational and career goals. From individual instructor support and student-led study groups to diverse clinicals and career networking opportunities, the Chamberlain community shares a common goal: to give each other the care we need to succeed and make a difference by transforming healthcare.

The subject matter under consideration includes Microbiology. The typical course of instruction may include:

BIOS-242: Fundamentals of Microbiology with Lab
This course covers basic concepts of microbiology, with emphasis
on medically important microorganisms and infectious diseases. Also
addressed are microscopy, microbial growth and genetics, antimicrobial
agents, epidemiology and immune system responses to pathogens.
Lab exercises focus on aseptic techniques, isolation and culture of
microorganisms, microscopy and staining techniques.

BIOS-271: Microbiology & Chemistry I with Lab
This course is the first in a two-course sequence addressing basic
foundations of chemistry and microbiology, using an integrated approach.
Through total integration and problem-solving approaches, aspects of
the two disciplines are emphasized. Topics include basic chemistry, with
introduction to organic and biochemistry; microbial classification and
genetics; and cellular structure and function.

Courses may meet once per week or twice a week for eight weeks. The face-to-face interaction in lab and classroom is blended with technology (such as online discussions and online assignments) for an enhanced learning environment. Commitment is on a course by course basis.

In this role, you will:
Become part of a dynamic team of educational professionals, teaching Nursing Students in a dynamic classroom/online hybrid setting
Implement and embrace Chamberlain University's Care philosophy, curriculum and course objectives by engaging students
