Creation of the Center
Housed at East Tennessee State University, the Appalachian Highlands Center for Nursing
Advancement was created in October 2021 thanks to a generous investment from Ballad
Health and State of Tennessee to create a center dedicated to bringing the region’s
academic nursing, clinical nursing, and school systems together in order to increase
the pipeline of opportunity and augment the supply of nurses and nursing support in
the Appalachian Highlands.
The center will address increasing nurses at all levels such as the CNAs, LPNs and RNs.
