Consortium for Nurse-Led Care

The Center for Nursing Practice is building a Nursing Practice Consortium for collaboration among people who are interested in developing nursing practice initiatives.

Update: Read our Winter 2017 Newsletter!

The Center for Nursing Practice Consortium is a virtual place for ideas, questions, education, and collaboration to support and encourage nurse-led initiatives, nurse-led care, and nurse-led leadership.

Membership is open to those interested in nurse-led care and leadership. The current members have either attended a Center for Nursing Practice conference and/or are interested in the proliferation of nurse-led care.

The Consortium meets yearly at the Center for Nursing Practice’s annual conference. Since 2016, the Center for Nursing Practice has hosted two conferences:  In 2016 – Collaboration for Nurse-Led Clinics and Care:  Success and Challenges and in 2017- Sustainability and Innovative Models in Nurse-Led Care and Clinics. The power point presentations from both conferences are available. Please contact Virginia Fowler for access at

The Consortium is a part of the Center for Nursing Practice in the College of Nursing at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. If you would like to become a member or have more specific questions, please contact Dr. Nan Gaylord or Virginia Fowler at

The Nursing Practice Consortium will strengthen the relationship between nurses in practice and the UT College of Nursing, and promote and facilitate collaboration among member organizations and with others to identify and address opportunities for strengthening the nursing community and to ensure adequate access to high-quality, ever-improving nursing services.

The annual Nursing Practice Conference will provide the consortium with a forum for educating members on best business and clinical practices and telehealth opportunities, along with new study findings, research, and successful initiatives within the state of Tennessee and beyond. In addition, online resources will be available to assist others interested in developing nurse-managed care initiatives and clinics. Currently, the Center for Nursing Practice offers continuing nursing education.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the consortium, contact Virginia Fowler at or 865-974-8741.
