Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Interprofessional education today presents both challenges and opportunities to leaders in nursing education. Registered Nurses and Practical Nurses work together as essential members of health care teams, but have little opportunity to learn together in their respective programs of study. The Joint Clinical Placements for Registered Nurse and Practical Nurse Students, is an innovative project which offered joint clinical placements for BN and LPN students. Direct clinical supervision was provided to both levels of learners by a single, jointly hired clinical instructor; one in a rural setting and the second in an urban facility. The evaluation indicated that this model met the goal of maximizing the utilization of scarce faculty and clinical placement resources, particularly in rural locations. While the goals of the project were clearly met, an unpredicted and positive observation was the increased knowledge, comprehension and regard that developed between the Practical Nurse and Registered Nurse students and the roles and responsibilities each has in the provision of safe, competent nursing care. The learnings from this project can be applied to other settings and disciplines where interprofessional education strategies are being considered.
