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.
What Morehead offers
The center fosters relationships between health care businesses and UNMC nursing faculty to provide professional clinical coverage.
We facilitate contracts between clinical practices and faculty, while covering all benefits – including malpractice insurance.
Nursing faculty continually seek partnerships for community-based activities across Nebraska, such as health fairs and screening events.
