About Practice and Engagement

The Office of Practice and Engagement (OPE) was established in 2009 and provides a research and learning laboratory where evidence based practice and education occur. The OPE fosters the growth of clinical science and oversees the just UT Nursing for the School of Nursing.

Our charge is to create an accessible, caring, high quality, culturally proficient and effective health care delivery system for individuals, families and communities.

The UT Nursing provides our School of Nursing faculty members with the ability to engage in a comprehensive practice environment, providing services to students, faculty, and staff of the UT Health Science Center as well as individuals in the community in need of health care.

If you would like further information about our services or to learn about how you may engage with the UT School of Nursing in private practice contracts, industry partnerships, or global service learning initiatives please call 210-567-5927.
