Educational Outreach

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Nursing is an approved provider of Nursing Continuing Professional Development (NCPD) by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Through the Center for Nursing Practice, we offer a variety of continuing nursing education opportunities including, but not limited to, leadership training, targeted areas of research, mentoring trends, cultural competency, advocacy, forensics, sexual assault training, simulation, and advanced practice nursing topics including an annual pharmacology update.

Face-to-face and webinar sessions are available for proactive nurses in continuously updating their knowledge and skills to promote and improve health care. We position ourselves to support several educational offerings in conjunction with other professional disciplines to endorse the needs of our society.
