Abstract

Establishing cooperative relationships between schools of nursing and local education agencies for the delivery of health care services to children from pre-school through the twelfth grade is a process all too often characterized by numerous legal, insurance, and administrative roadblocks. While nursing faculty and their students may wish to cooperate with professional educators and their students to enhance the health care of the children, there are obstacles. Both institutions are represented by attorneys, insurance companies and others who must attend to aspects of the process other than direct health care delivery. A model for joint planning and a list of elements of effective agreements are offered as a way of engaging all parties in a constructive and useful process of collaboration.
