Patients and Visitors go to


(June 1st – August 29th)

Welcome to the Vanderbilt Transplant Nurse Practitioner Symposium website where you will find the most up-to-date conference information including links to registration and housing sites. 

Our annual conference is designed to address the complexities of managing the transplant patient within the scope of practice of the nurse practitioner, and advanced practice nurses. As the number of Nurse Practitioners caring for transplant patients continues to increase, their role focusing on acute/chronic illness with emphasis on preventative maintenance has become vital to the lifelong care of transplant patients and their unique needs. We are committed to providing you the most current data and best practices by presenting evidence-based transplant practice in a non-biased format.

Some of this year's Clinical Update topics were selected from participant feedback and will center on a Team Based Approach to the Management of the Transplant Patient.  Agenda topics include Infectious Risk Exposure, Diabetes, Medication Adherence, Hyperlipidemia HTN, Marijuana in Transplant, Pharmacology Updates as well as non-organ specific guidelines for assessment of transplant patients and diagnosis and treatment of common comorbidities and more.
