Practice and Community Engagement

In keeping with the university's goal to "improve the quality of life of Kentuckians through engagement, outreach and service," College of Nursing faculty and staff have a long-standing commitment to serve and engage with a variety of stakeholder groups. These service and engagement activities include the provision of expert nursing practice, continuing education and community education offerings, as well as leadership of nursing and health-related boards, committees and task forces at the local, state, national and international levels.

The College has supported an active program of faculty practice for more than 20 years through seven areas of practice:

Acute Care
Adult CNS
Leadership and Management
Pediatrics
Primary Care
Psych/Mental Health
Public Health

Through this plan, the College's advanced practice nurses serve our constituents as both consultants and direct care providers in hospitals, clinics, schools and homeless shelters.
