Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Nurse educators and clinical practice leaders face many challenges that call for creative and effective leadership: nurse educator shortages, increasing student nurse enrollments resulting in a demand for clinical placements, increasingly complex health care environments, and the need for career advancement among nurses. These challenges have created an opportunity for those working in nursing education and practice environments within one health region in Alberta, Canada to develop a partnership that utilizes joint appointments for enhancing clinical nursing education. In the summer of 2007, in anticipation of the growing need for highly skilled clinical instructors, the University of Lethbridge and Chinook Health partnered in an innovative program that involved working with the United Nurses of Alberta to develop a 14 month pilot project whereby three registered nurses employed by Chinook Health accepted joint appointments as clinical instructors in the Nursing Education for Southwestern Alberta (NESA) Program. This arrangement enabled nursing students to benefit from the invaluable expertise of Chinook Health's registered nurses, and also supported Chinook Health and the University of Lethbridge in facilitating student learning through the effective integration of theory and practice within clinical settings. This presentation highlights: partnership formation, benefits of partnership, leadership challenges, evaluation, and future developments.
