About Morehead Center:
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.
For more information, contact Heather Cook-Mikkelsen, interim director, by phone, 402-559-9132, or email.

Part of Morehead:
Residing within UNMC’s College of Nursing, the Morehead Center for Nursing Practice fosters relationships between health care businesses and UNMC nursing faculty. Advanced-practice nurses are matched with community partners across the state who are in need of part time expert clinical coverage. UNMC sees it as part of the university’s commitment to Nebraska’s citizens and their health care. We want our faculty both enriching practices and impacting patients. Whether it’s Scottsbluff, Omaha, or anywhere in between, opportunities are likely available – or we can make them happen. Interested practices and faculty should contact the Morehead Center for more.
It’s simple. We facilitate contracts between clinical practices and RN-, CNS-, FNP-, PNP-, ANP-, and AGNP-licensed faculty, while covering all benefits – including malpractice insurance. Clinical practices merely have a simple monthly invoice. Meanwhile, as part of their academic appointment, nursing faculty integrate clinic hours into their regular UNMC workweek, demonstrating team-based extraordinary care along the way.
Practicing faculty are UNMC employees – so UNMC covers health insurance, 401K, vacation, and even handles administrative payroll and malpractice insurance. Meanwhile, the Morehead Center for Nursing Practice 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 career balance and work-life balance.
