Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Challenges securing appropriate clinical placements for nursing students have demanded a reconsideration of traditional practical learning opportunities. Health human resource issues in all health care sectors have also created a practice-based learning environment that can be challenging at best. This context creates a need for nursing academic leadership to find innovative ways of influencing practice through creative partnerships when exploring placement opportunities. Similarly, a reexamination of entry level nursing students' application of knowledge to practice is critical to the success of professional socialization. Responsibility for nursing student placements at the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) rests with the Centre for Professional Nursing Excellence, where systems and procedures have been developed and implemented to facilitate the matching process. In order to facilitate and streamline nursing academic partnerships, recruitment and retention strategies have been shared with organizations and educational institutions. Strategies that have been implemented at RNAO with individual nursing students provide case study examples out of which replicable advice for nursing academic leadership can be gleaned. A system of interaction that starts with placement partnership and ends with effective recruitment and retention is necessary for the future of nursing.
