Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Very often the partnerships created by Schools of Nursing are of significant benefit to the School with little reciprocal benefit to the partners. This poster presentation will highlight the partnerships developed by McMaster University School of Nursing for the enhancement of academic capacity within the nursing community. Through affiliations with individual health care providers and healthcare organizations, the School of Nursing provides reciprocal opportunities for learning for students and faculty and for practicing nurses in the areas of research, education and practice. The objectives of this presentation will be to outline the processes and outcomes of partnerships related to academic planning, preceptor development, and building capacity in teaching, research and clinical practice. Emphasis will be placed on the synergy gained through effective collaborative relationships outside the "Ivory Tower" of the University environment. The role of unpaid clinical faculty in supporting student education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, the activities of the Committee for Partnerships in Nursing Research in enhancing research capacity of practicing nurses, and the work of Academic Partnership Committees with 2 academic teaching centres will be described. Lessons learned from these mutual affiliations in developing academic capacity within a community will be highlighted.
