The nursing shortage and the continually changing healthcare environment push nursing graduates to quickly assume complex leadership positions. This is an issue that demands attention and action within the nursing profession. This study was done to confront factors inherently embedded within this issue. The aims of this study were to; 1) merge academic and service organizational leadership values, skills, and competencies; 2) develop innovative educational strategies and experiences between baccalaureate senior nursing students and registered nurses in practice within a shared governance environment; 3) identify and strengthen those experiences found to support professional empowerment; and 4) determine the difference innovative educational strategies have on development of leadership abilities of senior nursing students, nursing graduates, and nurse preceptors. This study was developed through participation as an academic and service team in the Leadership Initiative in Nursing Education program sponsored by UCSF Center for the Health Professions and the Helene Fuld Trust. The theoretical framework was derived from leadership concepts found in the Clinical Practice Model, Laschinger's use of Kanter's Organizational Empowerment Theory, Campbell's Cultivating Empowerment Model, and Goleman's Emotional Intelligence Model. Content analysis of student reflection journals and student and preceptor audio taped interviews was done for all participants in a newly designed innovative practicum leadership experience. Comparative analysis of nursing student graduates whom participated in the innovative experience and those students in the traditional practicum experience occurred at 12 months post graduation by use of Laschinger's Empowerment Tools. Comparative analysis of preceptors was done by pre and post-practicum measurement using Laschinger's tools. Immediate changes were implemented in the leadership practicum as the result of findings at the end of year one. Findings from this study yield new understanding about the impact academic and service partnerships have on empowering experiences and leadership development for the nursing student, graduate, and preceptor.
