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. Under the leadership of Dr. Julie Novak, the OPE fosters the growth of clinical science and overseas the UT Clinical Nursing Enterprise 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 Clinical Enterprise 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.

This site is to assist in learning about the current services we provide. If you would like further information about our services or 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 210-567-5968.
