NSRH Job Openings


Education Program Director

Mission Statement

NSRH provides students, nurses and midwives with education and resources to become skilled care providers and social change agents in sexual and reproductive health and justice.

Vision

We envision a world in which all people have access to just and dignified full-spectrum reproductive and sexual health care.

The Opportunity

NSRH is a growing organization that recently underwent a name change and mission expansion. In 2018 we changed our name from Nursing Students for Sexual and Reproductive Health (NSSRH) to Nurses for Sexual and Reproductive Health (NSRH). This change occurred because we recognized the need to create a home for Nurses in SRH throughout the trajectory of their careers.

Sexual and reproductive health is an integral component of a person’s overall health and well-being, yet millions in the US lack sexual and reproductive healthcare (SRH) access, especially people who are low income, of color, LGBTQ, young, or living in isolated rural areas. While nurses provide most reproductive and sexual health care services in the United States, this content is under-represented in nursing education and continuing education programs.

To achieve universal access to comprehensive, full-spectrum SRH, all nurses must have access to education and training from pre-licensure, to professional development opportunities for seasoned clinicians. They must also understand how economic and socio-cultural factors impact patients’ sexual and reproductive lives and reflect the diversity of the communities they serve. NSRH is helping to realize this vision by providing nursing students, nurses, and midwives with the education, professional development opportunities, and advocacy tools they need to become social change agents in sexual and reproductive health and justice.

We have identified 3 Program Areas to help us fulfill this mission:

  1. SRH Education and Training
  2. Professional Development, and
  3. Advocacy Tools and Training

In order to meet these objectives, we need to grow our staff. We are presently a team of three: the Operations Manager is based in the home office in St. Paul, MN, the Director of Advocacy and Engagement is based in Phoenix, AZ, and the Executive Director is located in both Berkeley, CA and Chicago, IL. We also have an amazing Board of Directors composed of SRH practitioners and advocates located throughout the country.

We are looking for a person who is fluent in both Spanish and English, a creative individual who can help us build out our Educational Program. Thus far our educational programming has mainly consisted of various webinars and events co-produced by the two Program Directors. We also have an out of the box curriculum, the Abortion Care Elective (ACE), that was originally created for group learning on a campus or in an organization. We are in the process of translating that content into online modules that can be used by individual learners for CEs using Articulate 360. Those modules will be accessed through our MemberClicks LMS and will form the base of our SRH Online Institute, which will serve as the cornerstone of our Educational Program.

The Education Program Director will be responsible for growing and managing the Online Institute and must, therefore, be experienced in online learning and comfortable navigating a Learning Management System. In order to ensure that we are able to continue to develop new and innovative content we will also be launching an “Expert-in-Residence” Program for NSRH. The Education Program Director will develop, implement and manage this new program.

This is a full-time exempt position that reports directly to the Executive Director.

  • Collaborate with the Professional Development Director and the Advocacy and Engagement Director when there is programmatic overlap.
  • Stay informed of trends in the sector and represent NSRH at relevant convenings, meetings, etc…
  • Identify opportunities to cultivate partnerships and nurture opportunities with relevant organizations in the field.
  • Help to increase the visibility and profile of the Online Institute and other educational programming.
  • Do the work that is needed to support the success of the Education Program.

  • Must be bilingual (able to read, write, and speak in both English and Spanish fluently)
  • Must have at least 5 years of program management experience

  • Must have experience with online learning including creating online learning modules using Articulate 360 or a similar tool
  • Must have experience publishing and managing content via a Learning Management System.
  • Looking for someone who is creative and entrepreneurial, this is an opportunity to build out a new program area for our organization.
  • Must be a strong problem-solver
  • Must be a strong communicator (verbal and written). Most of your interactions will be via phone or email so strong communications skills are imperative.
  • Must have access to a reliable internet connection and be based somewhere in the US.
  • Must be proficient with Google Suite (Gmail, Drive, etc)
  • Must be proficient with Office Suite (Word, Excel, etc)
  • Must be comfortable navigating online meeting, workflow management, and collaboration tools. Social media savvy is a plus.
  • Must be a great team player and collaborator and demonstrate the ability to work effectively with individuals of diverse backgrounds (ethnicity, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, ability, etc…)
  • Please note that some travel is required for this position (post COVID)
  • Bachelor’s Degree, at minimum, required

What we offer

  • Salary: $60,000 a year plus Medical, dental, vision, and short-term disability benefits
  • Generous paid time off (PTO) package
  • A work laptop and work phone for use during your tenure with NSRH

  • An amazing team of colleagues
  • Work that matters
