Partnerships between primary health care programs and schools of nursing have the potential to improve outcomes for underserved patient populations while enhancing clinical expertise of faculty and learning opportunities for students. This project describes a community-based faculty practice/education model between a school of nursing and a Community Health Center to provide comprehensive management of hypertension. The school of nursing recognized a need for community-based educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Meetings between the school of nursing and the community health center identified hypertension as a major health problem among the indigent, primarily Latino population serve by the center. A Fuld grant funded the project for two years to: 1) Develop a long-term collaborative relationship between the School of Nursing and the Community Health Center, 2) Improve quality of care for the hypertensive patient at the Community Health Center, and 3) Create a collaborative community-based learning environment among BS students, MS students (Family Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Nurse Specialist/Case Management students), faculty from the nursing school, and primary care providers form the health center. The Hypertension Clinic has been in operation for more than two years. Audits conducted in August 2000 indicated that 300 patients were scheduled to be seen at the clinic. A random chart audit of 42 charts of hypertension patients (25 patients seen as the Hypertension Clinic and 17 patients seen by other providers) indicated that 72% of the patients managed at Hypertension clinic had achieved target blood pressures compared to 59% of the patients managed by other providers. Eight Family Nurse Practitioner students worked with the NP faculty to manage hypertension, nine CNS students worked with a graduate faculty to provide case management and education to 11 clients, and seven undergraduate nursing students engaged in health promotion teaching. Other outcomes of the Hypertension Clinic include collaborative inservices presented to students, staff, and providers at the clinic, community blood pressure screenings with referrals to the clinic, and the development of a Protocol and Algorithm for long-term medical management of hypertension for the Community Health Center. The Faculty Practice Hypertension serves as a model for community-based curriculum development and interdisciplinary collaboration.
