TCPS Tennessee Partners

Tennessee currently has seven regional collaboratives across the state that also includes North Georgia, North Mississippi, Eastern Arkansas, Southern Kentucky, and Western North Carolina.  Partners work together to achieve the goal of improving the efficacy and capacity of clinical placements in Tennessee-based healthcare facilities through the use of a centralized, coordinated, online clinical placement and orientation system.

These collaboratives are founded upon a union of common purposes where all parties benefit from the synergies of cooperation and the fruits of success. It is a “working relationship” characterized by mutual participation, joint interest, and mutual respect.  Partnership with TCPS does NOT replace affiliation agreements between facilities and schools.  Region assignment is generally based upon the physical location of the organization.  Partners may interact in a variety of regions based upon a program of study, geographical location, and location of their student population.

Regions of the state are in varying stages of development:

  • Middle Tennessee & South Central Kentucky- Spring 2006
  • West Tennessee (Memphis, North Mississippi, East Arkansas) –  Fall 2007
  • SouthEast Tennessee (Chattanooga, Cleveland, Western North Carolina) –  Fall 2008
  • MidWest Tennessee (Jackson, Dyersburg, Union City)  Spring 2008
  • East Tennessee (Knoxville, Harriman, Oak Ridge, Morristown, Jefferson City, South East Kentucky) – Fall 2009
  • Upper Cumberland (Cookeville, Crossville & Upper Cumberland) 2017
  • North Georgia – January 2017
  • Managed Partners- Fall 2018  These schools bring students sporadically into our regional facilities and were partners in AY2018-2019, or have already partnered for AY2019-2020.  These partners renew annually as they have clinical placement needs with a TCPS facility partner.

The current partners are listed below.  Partners are Schools/Departments of Nursing unless otherwise listed.
