    Information on Status and Adjunct Appointments at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing

    Academic appointments with the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing (LSBFON) are administered under the procedures of the Guideline for Appointment of Status-only, Adjunct and Visiting Professors of the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing. Status-only, adjunct, and visiting professor academic appointments may be awarded to individuals who hold their primary employment outside University of Toronto. They are normally non-salaried and non-continuing academic appointments and are given to individuals whose skill and expertise can advance the academic mission of the University and the LSBFON. All persons who apply for and are offered a Status-only or Adjunct academic appointment at the University of Toronto will be provided a letter of offer outlining duties and obligations, and the privileges that accompany the appointment.

    Status-Only Academic Appointments

    Individuals being considered for Status-only appointments normally hold full-time employment arrangements with another institution with a job description that is primarily academic (a position that formally includes components of research and/or teaching).  Most often, Status-only appointments may be granted to qualified employees of affiliated hospitals, research institutions, agencies with collaborative agreements with the University of Toronto or other universities.  Status-only appointments are ranked appointments as assistant, associate, or full professor. Normally PhD (or equivalent) educational preparation is required for Status-only appointments.

    Adjunct Academic Appointments

    There are two types of Adjunct faculty appointments: Lecturer and Professor. Adjunct academic appointments are awarded for a limited and specified term. Adjunct faculty appointments are not ranked. Normally, graduate educational preparation is required to hold an Adjunct academic appointment.

    An Adjunct Lecturer appointment may be awarded to individuals who are employed elsewhere in positions that are not primarily academic in nature. Such individuals have special skills or learning of value to the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing and may provide services for which recognition is desirable. Individuals who are appointed within the LSBFON teaching programs or who contribute their skills or experience in supervising clinical placements are normally appointed as Adjunct Lecturers.

    Adjunct Professor appointments are awarded to eminent professionals of recognized stature. The Adjunct Professor category of appointment is reserved for distinguished individuals of exemplary achievement with whom the LSBFON expects to have an on-going relationship.

    Process for Appointment Application and Review

    The Dean of the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing will invite selected Chief Nursing Executives (CNE) or their equivalent in health-care agencies to nominate qualified members of their staff to submit applications for an appointment. Other individuals may be invited directly by the Dean to apply for an appointment.

    NB: We do not offer appointments to students currently registered in a University of Toronto program.

    Please follow the instructions in the tabs for new or renewal appointments.

    The Appointments Committee at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing will review all applications.

    The applicant will be informed of the Committee recommendation via email.
