Frontier Nursing University (FNU) and its Board of Directors are searching for a dynamic, forward-thinking leader to succeed current President Susan Stone who plans to retire this year. The next president will have the opportunity to build on the momentum established during President Stone’s 22-year tenure. We are searching for a President who is visionary, collaborative, brings a track record of established leadership and is prepared to enthusiastically represent FNU and its mission.
Originally located in Hyden, KY and now located in Versailles, Kentucky, Frontier Nursing University was founded in 1939 as the Frontier Graduate School of Midwifery. FNU has since grown to become one of the largest private, not-for-profit universities in the United States for advanced practice nursing and midwifery education.
Applicant requirements include an earned doctoral degree in nursing or a related health field (PhD, DNSc, DNP, DrPH) from an accredited institution in higher education, and current certification as a nurse-midwife (CNM) by the American Midwifery Certification Board. The successful candidate should be a transformative leader with executive leadership experience in academic or healthcare settings. Candidates must possess a working knowledge base of all nursing programs offered at Frontier Nursing University including nurse-midwifery, family practice, psychiatric-mental health and women’s health care. Applicants should have experience implementing collaborative Diversity, Equity & Inclusion programs as they will shepherd FNU as a leader in diversity initiatives.
The President must commit to living in Versailles, KY and becoming an active community participant.
