  3. Experiment in Progress

  4. Vision For The Partnership Best Partners for Best Practices A formal structural partnership will create a synergy for continuous quality improvement in both the education and practice of nursing. Furthermore, it will advance an organizational model consistent with the underlying philosophy of operation of an academic Health Sciences Center as a component of a university.

  5. Living Next Door to one another or within the same university does not a partnership make!

  6. Academic-Service Partnerships are not simply Hospital-School Affiliations

  7. Academic-Service Partnerships • Many Models • Academic Medical Center Models • Hospital-Community Partners Models • Blended Models

  8. Academic-Service Partnerships • There are as many possible ways to formulate academic-service partnerships as there are potential partners • Partnerships are about trusting, open relationships and ongoing communication, joint planning and day to day operations • Recognize what your individual strengths are and what you can do better as partners • Beware of “Power Struggles”

  9. Story of One Partnership Model • Early meetings and Discussions • Start with a small very committed group of people • Must include the Dean and CNO • Must include people who will work through the details and day to day operations • Must have committed leaders/cheerleaders who will carry the vision into ACTION
