Clinical Services Through Faculty Practices

Academic Clinicians: Our Impact

The University of Utah College of Nursing has a robust and growing faculty practice. Faculty Practice and practice sites are essential to the college's academic, clinical, and research missions.

Faculty Practice has four primary areas of healthcare: 

  • Women's Health
  • Adolescent and Family Care
  • Grief Through Loss: Caring Connections
  • Behavioral Health

These four arenas of care provide practice sites for 49 CON faculty to engage in clinical practice and provide excellent sites for our students to gain knowledge. Faculty Practice employs 24 registered nurses in both clinical and clinical leader roles and a team of five administrative staff.
