Morehead Center for Nursing Practice


An advocate for faculty clinical practice

Traditionally, nursing faculty who want to keep their clinical expertise sharp take on a side job, or two. But the Morehead Center for Nursing Practice, at the UNMC College of Nursing, serves as an advocate for our faculty in an innovative approach: the right clinical practice as part of an academic appointment. Through the Morehead Center’s integrated model, our faculty can achieve work-life balance while modeling for their students firsthand what extraordinary care looks like. To the Morehead Center, clinical practice is not in addition to an academic appointment, but a mindful part of it. This is what’s possible at UNMC.
