Abstract (Summary)

A critical shortage of nurses in the early 21st century called for creative approaches from both the educational and service sectors. Decreasing state funding for public higher education and increasing temporary nursing staffing costs led to an innovative partnership program between an acute care hospital and a baccalaureate nursing program. Increased nursing student enrollment, shortened time to graduation, and provision of clinical faculty were some of the benefits to the nursing program. Outcomes within the hospital included a dramatic reduction in temporary staffing costs, increased nurse retention, and a positive shift of hospital culture. Academic and service partnerships in health care bring together organizational resources and can be an effective strategy to optimize the delivery of education as well as patient care.
