The Institute of Medicine recommends that researchers investigate strategies that build social capital to address healthcare quality. Social capital describes the quality of social relations within a group. The basic attributes of social capital are trust, civic engagement and reciprocity. Nursing in today's complex healthcare environment requires the ability to work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams. To deliver effective, safe and high quality care, nurses rely on skill in communication, negotiation, and collegiality. The concept of social capital provides a theoretical framework to foster examination of issues contributing to poor collaboration and incivility among new nursing professionals, as well as to develop strategies to address these problems. The purpose of the proposed project is to develop strategies to build social capital in a student nursing community. Ten nursing student leaders have been selected at random to be involved in community-based participatory research. They will serve as both researchers and change agents to address the problems of incivility and poor collaboration and to improve the social capital and effectiveness of a learning community. This mixed methods study will gather qualitative and quantitative data to assess the outcome of increased collaboration, civility and social capital in the learning community. The student leaders will gather qualitative data through interviews with their peers about dimensions of these areas. They will participate in monthly Journal Clubs led by faculty and graduate student research team members. The focus of the Journal Clubs will be to foster open inquiry by examining nursing literature on open inquiry, social capital, collaboration, collegiality and civility in nursing. Qualitative data will be analyzed by concept analysis identification of themes. Quantitative data will be analyzed for descriptive statistics and for mean differences between pre and post-intervention measures. Key Words: Social Capital, Community Based Participatory Research, Collaboration
