Continuing nursing education and professional development are integral to the College of Nursing mission and strategic goals. As an approved provider of continuing nursing education through the Tennessee Nurses Association, the College of Nursing meets the high standards established by the American Nurses Credentialing Center in awarding professional contact hours. The CON also works closely with the University of Tennessee Office of Personal and Professional Development to award continuing education units (CEUs) and ensure program quality.
Sigma Theta Tau Research Day and the Mary T. Boynton Lecture series are but two professional development opportunities for nursing faculty, students, and practicing nurses in the community. The CON also provides faculty development programs which are open to all nursing faculty in the region.
The CON collaborates with area hospitals, health care facilities, and nursing partners to develop and implement continuing education programs.
