Rightsizing Projects for Non–Research-Intensive Schools of Nursing via Academic-Clinical Partnerships
Most academic-clinical partnerships are described as formal agreements between schools of nursing at research-intensive universities and large teaching hospitals. This article demonstrates less formal versions of academic-clinical partnerships established between a small, private liberal arts university school of nursing and 2 regional clinical agencies. In both exemplars, students, faculty, and staff contributed to evidence-based practice projects. Schools of nursing in non–research-intensive environments can develop right-size academic-clinical partnerships that are beneficial for all parties involved.
