Journal Article (Journal Article)

Academic–practice partnerships are necessary for strengthening nursing practice, robust and relevant academic programs, and advancing health care. The purpose of this paper is to describe how a strong academic–practice partnership shaped our response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. During this unprecedented time, existing relationships between the health system and school of nursing were quickly leveraged to provide mutually beneficial relief, opportunities, and support. Initiatives described in this paper demonstrate how powerful a concentrated academic–practice partnership can be in transforming the nursing profession. Moving forward, it will be crucial for schools to build partnerships with appropriate organizations that have a vested interest in preparing nurses for the future.
