Pediatric Nurse Educator 74 views

Position Description

Seed Pediatric Nurse Educators are placed as visiting faculty at academic institutions in Malawi to teach and work alongside local faculty for one year. In partnership, they strengthen the quality and breadth of nursing and midwifery education and enhance the quality of clinical practice by strengthening skills through clinical mentorship, training and professional development opportunities. As more educators build confidence and competence, they will create a “multiplier effect” that exponentially increases the supply of skilled health professionals who are locally-trained and locally-rooted. These health professionals not only provide quality care but teach their successors and other health workers as well as serve as agents of change for the health system within their country.

Position Responsibilities 

In partnership with host country faculty and local nurse and midwifery leaders, key roles and responsibilities may include (but are not limited to):

  • Participating in the development, refinement or sequencing of masters or undergraduate curricula that integrates educational best practices in the context of country and partner institution specific regulations, mission and needs;
  • Providing evidence-based methods for classroom-based instruction to undergraduate and /or post-graduate students including development of syllabi, lectures, student assessment;
  • Providing evidence-based methods for clinical instruction and evaluation to students, clinicians or other learners emphasizing best practices;
  • Providing evidence-based methods for skills lab/simulation instruction and evaluation to students, clinicians or other learners emphasizing best practices;
  • Providing evidence-based methods for community-based instruction and evaluation to students, clinicians or other learners emphasizing best practices;
  • Supporting formal and informal professional development and mentoring opportunities requested by partner-country faculty and clinicians;
  • Facilitate training and evaluation of master trainers and first cohort of trainees in specific areas related to maternal, neonatal, child health (ie: Emergency Obstetrics and Neonatal Care, Helping Babies Breathe, Helping Mothers Survive), as requested;
  • Facilitating academic-clinical partnerships to develop practice improvement projects that strengthen care at the point of service and provide learning opportunities for students and clinical staff;
  • If appropriate, working with national (including ministries of health and education) nursing and midwifery organizations to assist in the planning, implementation and/or evaluation of policies that support the enhancement of the professions of nursing and midwifery; and
  • Participating in partnership meetings during Seed site visits as requested to support the planning, implementation and/or monitoring, evaluation and learning of Seed’s partnership with the host institution(s).


  • Modeling professional and ethical behavior in all aspects of health care delivery and education;
  • Enhancing existing clinical training systems and structures by developing and implementing innovative teaching tools; and
  • Fostering integrated education and practice among medical, nursing and midwifery students.
