Clinical Resources

The University's active role within the community ensures expanded educational experiences in a wide range of clinical settings. UT nursing students benefit from formal affiliations with more than 120 clinical agencies and practices. A community rich in health care agencies means enhanced opportunities for jobs and career building. This network provides opportunities in a vast array of specialties and settings, including primary care and clinical management roles in pediatrics, adult and family health, geriatrics, women's health, administration, informatics, and education.

Preceptors eagerly await the opportunity to assist students in fine tuning essential skills for practice in the clinical area. Preceptors are actively engaged in community practice settings and provide a flavor of the scope of practice available to graduating students.

An advisory board of community leaders and volunteers assists the Department of Nursing with the planning and evaluation of UT's nursing programs. Members represent agencies in the community, educational institutions, and nursing organizations. Input and feedback from employers of UT graduates help to invigorate the curriculum and to provide opportunity for enhancement and expansion to meet the needs of the community.
