Phases: SIP 1  SIP 3 

Tennessee Nursing Institute for Leadership & Policy

Project Accomplishments:

Tennessee supported nursing and advancement of nursing leaders through a variety of educational and promotional activities, including numerous articles in statewide and nursing publications. New board appointments included nurses placed on the county Board of Health and the Metropolitan Drug Commission in Knoxville.

Tennessee nursing leaders created a variety of online webinars to support professional nursing practice, with a series to develop nursing cultural competency and a series on nurse advocacy and policymaking. Tennessee further supported nursing professional engagement through legislative “boot camps” and virtual town hall meetings.
