[Clinical Session Presentation] One of the most critical challenges of today and for many future years is the severe shortage of healthcare professionals, namely registered professional nurses. The establishment of partnerships can be an integral component for the success of colleges, healthcare entities, students, and future nurses. This presentation reviews the steps taken to develop a partnership between a major healthcare system and a university in a large metropolitan area.  Presenters provide a three prong approach to one phase of the partnership: 1) development of a nursing scholars program; 2) development of an annual research-based collaborative conference, and 3) negotiation for development of an endowed chair position.  Participants will receive specific information regarding the development of the nursing scholars program, including student evaluation of the program.  In addition, information will be shared regarding collaboration efforts for annual research conferences and the establishment of healthcare supported endowed chair position for the College.The partnership between the two entities provides an opportunity for students and nurses to participate in the design of the preferred future of nursing. These partnership efforts enable the healthcare system to attract more registered professional nurses for their facilities.  The pilot group of scholarship recipients was established in December 2005.  Since that time, over 60 students were accepted into the program. Each spring second semester sophomores and second semester juniors are eligible to apply for the competitive program with tuition support beginning the next semester. Twenty-seven scholarships were awarded spring 2008.  In addition, partnership efforts include an annual research-based conference, with the first one offered in 2005.  A $2.85 million grant supported the establishment of an Endowed Chair position for a new Ph.D. in Nursing program, starting in Fall Semester 2009.
