Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: The urgent demand to expand enrollments to provide an adequate supply of well educated nurses is a challenge that educational institutions and health regions face together. The ability to increase educational capacity is dependent on adequate numbers of nursing faculty and access to quality placements for clinical learning. Nursing clinical education is resource intensive but critically important for the safe teaching of nursing in a patient centered practice discipline. The complexity of the capacity problem and the urgent need for change provided a leadership and research opportunity for the SIAST Nursing Division and the Saskatoon Health Region to develop and implement a practical, innovative solution. The strategy was the development of a formal partnership between the education program and the health region to utilize expert clinicians in a collaborative relationship with faculty to teach students in clinical practice. The aims were to increase student enrollments, expand faculty capacity, and retain experienced employees within the health region. The evaluations of this Adjunct Clinical Instructor model validated that collaboration and positive relationships between education and practice were promoted, the practice environment was enhanced for students, faculty and clinicians and the educational program was able to respond to the challenges of increased enrollments.
