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.
Living Next Door to one
another or within the same
university does not a
partnership make!
Academic-Service
Partnerships are not
simply Hospital-School
Affiliations
Academic-Service Partnerships

Many Models
Academic Medical Center Models
Hospital-Community Partners Models
Blended Models
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”
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
Create Preferred Futures
Nursing is
Knowledge Work
Nurses are not DOERS
who happen to think
But are
THINKERS who also do
Environment that EMBRACES

LIVES LIFE LONG LEARNING
