Job Description

As Nursing Program Team Lead reporting to the campus Provost offices, you will be at the forefront of shaping TSTC's lasting relationships with faculty and students. Accountable for an instructional program or group of programs, you will guide a program and faculty team at a campus location towards achieving remarkable performance results and growing their capabilities in "placing more Texans in great paying jobs."

The Nursing Program Team Lead will accomplish results by fostering a high trust culture, communicating a path to success, executing goals and commitments, and coaching and developing the potential of faculty and students. Success in this role includes outstanding team leadership in delivering best-in-class learning solutions that positively impact students in the program. Striking a balance between leading for performance (rigor) and demonstrating humanity (empathy) towards teammates and students is crucial for instructional teams. The Program Team Lead collaborates closely with campus leadership, statewide partners, and cross-functional departments, such as statewide technology leads, career services, enrollment management, and recruiting, to establish the team's direction and ensure alignment with TSTC's mission.

In addition to team leadership, this role involves management responsibilities such as goal setting, strategic alignment, personnel management, local participation in statewide coordinated activities, hiring highly qualified team members, budget accountability, and other day-to-day execution tasks. Occasionally, the Program Team Lead may provide course coverage if credentialed, but this role will generally not involve a teaching load.
