Description/Overview: The report on the Future of Nursing, released by the IOM in 2010, called for all nurses to engage in life- long learning, conduct practice based on evidence, and be prepared and enabled to lead change in the advancement of health. Additionally, the IOM calls for increasing the number of baccalaureate-prepared nurses to 80% by 2020. Nurse leaders from both academic and service settings must work collaboratively and with urgency to forge partnerships and achieve these goals. A partnership is an arrangement where parties agree to cooperate to advance their mutual interest. Deans of colleges of nursing and nurse executives in service settings are in critical positions to leverage their influence to create effective and successful partnerships. Evidence suggests that formal structured relationships are more likely to create greater levels of innovation and effectiveness. The urgency for creating and measuring these relationships has reached a pinnacle as the requirement for quality, safety, affordable and accountable care has become the expectation. The first session will feature the Dean of The Ohio State University College of Nursing and the Chief Nurse Executive at The Ohio State University Wexner Center, who will discuss the robust, synergistic partnership between a preeminent college of nursing and a large academic medical center. The presenters will discuss how this executive partnership has facilitated the development and expansion of programs to reach the IOM goals. The second session will provide an overview of three successful initiatives that have been developed and implemented through the academic and service partnership. The third session will discuss the collaborative efforts to manage increasing Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule (HIPAA) challenges with electronic medical record access for EBP and research.
