Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) invites applications for the position of Dean of the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing (GGHSON). This is a unique opportunity for a visionary leader to shape nursing education for the 21st century and impact health care by expanding the pool of qualified nurses in the Southwest region.
This position reports to the President of TTUHSC El Paso. The Dean will implement a strategic plan to meet the school’s mission of providing quality educational programs and advancing excellence in health care for diverse populations through programs of scholarship, research, practice, and service
The GGHSON is housed in a new, 34,000-square-foot building featuring state-of-the-art technology and design with ample office, classroom, and collaborative learning spaces. A 12,000-square-foot Regional Training and Simulation Center provides three fundamentals labs equipped with eight patient bays for an authentic learning environment. Research opportunities are numerous and access to core laboratories is available to support basic and clinical research. Construction of a new, $83 million, 219,900-square-foot Medical Sciences Building II is expected to be completed in 2019. The five-story building will more than double the campus’ research capacity and add crucial instructional space to support its growing student population.

A newly approved M.S.N. in Leadership marks the school’s first graduate program.
