[Leadership Session Presentation] Nurses in post acute settings and those in academia are both members of the larger nursing community and concerned about improving care of older adults. Models that enhance the relationships between these nurses and enhance the practice of both are highly desirable. Universities are expected to engage with communities for the benefit of both. Based on the definition of scholarship advanced by Boyer in the 1990's, inclusive of the scholarship of discovery, integration, teaching, and application, the School of Nursing at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Jewish Geriatric Services, Inc. have instituted a unique collaboration entitled the Scholar in Residence. Unlike traditional agreements between schools of nursing and agencies to provide clinical experience and educate students, this agreement is designed to build scholarship for both university and agency. Outcomes include building opportunities for staff, faculty, and student scholarship at the agency, enhancing the integration of knowledge into practice, intensifying opportunities for the sharing of knowledge by providing opportunities for students to work with faculty and staff on individual projects, and enriching the application of knowledge by providing opportunities for faculty clinical practice and consultation. Outcomes include an increase in research and scholarly productivity for staff, faculty, and students, and improved quality of care for older adult residents. The Scholar in Residence is a model of collaboration between the university and the community that reflects the mission of the university and provides value to the community agency through strategic engagement of both entities. The Scholar in Residence agreement builds relationships across settings to promote a community of nurse scholars in practice and research.
