Transformations taking place in nursing and education are being driven by socioeconomic factors, as well as by developments in health care delivery and professional nursing workforce issues. In this time of a severe nursing shortages, collaborative partnerships that meet the educational needs of working nurses and the employment needs of health care agencies are critical. Without considering the requirements of both the nurse and the health care agency, enrollment in higher education nursing programs will continue to drop. Furthermore, more nurses will exit the nursing profession, thus exacerbating the nursing shortage. Educational institutions need to continually strategize to offer quality education programs while being realistic to the needs of both the nurse and the health care agency. The future of our nursing profession, as well as the nation’s health, is contingent upon educational institutions’ ability to meet the needs of nurses today. To this point, agreements have occurred between educational institutions only. Little consideration was given to the expressed needs of nursing service. An educational mobility agreement that incorporates input from the educational institution and the point of service provider is innovative in that it considers the needs of the service oriented heath care provider. This initiative was financed by a grant from the Colleagues in Caring Project and the Helene Fuld Health Trust. The purpose of the project is to help states and regions build systems of work force development with the capacity to adapt to the rapid and continual changes in the nation’s health care system.
