The well documented nursing shortage demands creative solutions on the part of both academic institutions and nursing service organizations. The purpose of this presentation is to share with both academics and nursing clinicians a creative partnership model to educate more nurses. At the request of leadership within the Oregon nursing community, the University of Portland is ramping up to almost double the number of nursing students enrolled over the next two years. To increase enrollments requires: faculty, clinical facilities and scholarships. Building on a long-term partnership, the Providence Health System (PHS) of Oregon and the University of Portland (UP) has joined forces to solve the problem or educating new nurses. Providence Health System has committed to $2.5 million a year for a multi-year tuition assistance program that combined with University financial aid will fund 100% of the tuition for 75 junior and 75 senior nursing students a year for a minimum of six years. In addition to tuition loan repayments, qualified staff in the PHS will provide clinical instruction for 6-week periods once a year working in partnership with full-time faculty at the University. PHS will insure that students at UP are given preference for clinical placements. This presentation will share components of the relationship that has created this model in addition to the fiscal strategies used by the chief nursing executive in the PHS to insure funding of this bold proposal. This presentation will provide both educators and those in the service sector with specific strategies to use the model and its components with other health systems/university partnerships.
