Brandon King is an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-ACNP) and Director of the AG-ACNP Program. His current focus is on preparing Acute Care Nurse Practitioners for collaborative practice in the evolving healthcare system. He is exploring methods of pairing interprofessional healthcare education and translational research methods to train new providers in methods of rapid implementation and analysis of evidence based practice. He is also interested in health policy and politics, and methods of engaging healthcare providers in policy creation.

Prior to joining TU, King practiced full-time in the Trauma Center at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa. He continues to hold faculty practice with the Trauma Center, including the Trauma Clinic that provides follow-up care for patients with traumatic injuries after they leave the hospital. In addition to board certification as an AG-ACNP, he is also certified as an Adult Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and Critical Care Registered Nurse.

Before his nursing career, King studied comparative politics at the University of Oklahoma. His areas of focus were the interaction of government and non-governmental organizations, and democratization.
