Abstract:
Understanding the Role of Leadership in Development of Nursing Education and Community Partnerships
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Campbell, Sara, DNS, RN, CNAA, BC
P.I. Institution Name:Illinois State University
Title:Assistant Professor
Purpose: Describe a College of Nursing and community partnership project, developed as part of participation in the Chiron Mentor-Fellow Program, Sigma Theta Tau International. Project findings highlight the importance of a leadership role for nursing education in the community in which it resides. Scarce resources and economic concerns make it crucial for organizational leaders to seek, identify and develop partnerships with other entities that will be mutually beneficial. Nursing education leaders must learn to do more with less and are in a prime position to develop, cultivate and spearhead partnerships that influence education of nursing students, support programs of research, and improve quality of health. Project Goals: assess where a nursing program currently interfaced with the larger community, and directions for the future including; 1) conducting a descriptive study to look at current community health; 2) cultivating and understanding possible constituency links; 3) exploring partnership opportunities; 4) developing community health care themes; 5) exploring philanthropic opportunities; and 6) developing a 3-5 year recommendation plan addressing college role in forming partnerships for a healthier community. Fourteen university and 30 community interviews occurred. Questions focused on descriptions of existing health programs, perceived role of a nursing program in connecting with the community, perceptions of health concerns, and potential partnerships to improve health of community. While findings focus on one specific college of nursing and the community in which it resides, the process yielded information vital to nursing education leadership. Findings provide guidance for other programs desiring to develop similar partnerships. Understanding how to harness a vast amount of information and energy from constituents in diverse environments is paramount. Key issues focus on the need to "recognize and identify new opportunities for leadership," increase visibility, identify and work with constituents, be an active community member, and collaborate with others in diverse community environments.
