Clare Thomson-Smith, M.S.N., R.N., J.D., has been named assistant dean for Faculty Practice at Vanderbilt University School of Nursing.

Thomson-Smith heads up the Center for Advanced Practice and Allied Health and will continue in that role, working closely with VUSN on behalf of all advanced practice nurse faculty who practice at the Medical Center.

“Clare is a wonderful mix of problem-solver, experienced practitioner and business person,” said Bonnie Pilon, D.S.N., R.N., senior associate dean for VUSN’s Clinical and Community Partnerships. “She has been on faculty for nearly five years and we look forward to her making her imprint on our thriving faculty practice area at the Medical Center.”

Thomson-Smith’s role will be to work, as she does now, with VUSN faculty who are practicing on campus and in Williamson County under the Vanderbilt Medical Group. She is already instrumental in moving them through the privileging and credentialing processes; in this new role, she will oversee human resource components on behalf of these faculty, under the direction and guidance of the senior associate dean for Faculty Practice.
