Abstract

Executive Summary▸ Today's nursing leaders are setting the stage for the next evolution - bringing together skilled clinicians and administrators with peers in education to create new approaches to leading the profession forward.▸ Partnerships share goals, common purpose, mutual respect, willingness to negotiate and compromise, informed participation, information giving, and shared decision making.▸ The shared practice academia effort between a public university and a private health care system situated in the island state of Hawai'i is described.▸ The medical center and school of nursing pursued individual strategic efforts to build research capacity and used the opportunity to fund academic practice research projects.▸ The mutual need and recognition of the high stakes involved, in concert with stable, committed leaders at all levels, were key to the early success of their efforts.▸ Through the formal research partnership mechanism, a discrete focus was created for efforts and used to move to tactical, operational, and interpersonal integration in this relationship.
