Nurse Educator: Curriculum Development Specialist

Project Description

Advancing Health Professionals (AHP): a Peace Corps Response program, is seeking a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as a Nurse Educator: Curriculum Development Specialist at Daeyang University, Daeyang College of Nursing and Midwifery, in Lilongwe, Malawi, without the provision of direct medical care to patients or clinical supervision of students. The position requires a Master of Science in Nursing or related degree, current nursing licensure, experience in curriculum development, and five years of professional work experience in research and grant proposal writing. Teaching experience, intercultural competence and communication skills are desired qualifications.

The Daeyang College of Nursing and Midwifery plays a crucial role in addressing the country’s persistent health challenges. The college, operating under the Christian Health of Malawi (CHAM) training colleges, contributes substantially to training mid-level health professionals, particularly nurses and midwives, who form the backbone of Malawi's healthcare workforce.

The PCRV will co-teach and mentor nursing students in classroom and nursing skills laboratory, lecture basic nursing sciences courses, participate in the review of the undergraduate curriculum, and mentor staff in research and grant proposal writing.

Peace Corps Response established its "Advancing Health Professionals" program in 2019. Response Volunteers serving with the AHP program seek to improve health outcomes on a societal level by providing high-level, specialized service in the health sector. AHP projects include health professions educators, health systems strengthening, service delivery improvement, and other non-clinical interventions that enhance the quality of healthcare.

Invitees will be arriving in Malawi together as a group. While the whole group's departure dates could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
