Partnerships between academic and clinical entities are essential for change in nursing education and the healthcare arena to maximize improvements in quality, clinical, cost, and safety outcomes. The nursing profession has a strong legacy of partnerships in which respect and trust are essential to develop mutual goals and a common vision. In addition, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and American Organization for Nurse Executives advocate and support these partnerships. These organizations have embraced key principles important to any partnership for strong outcomes and sustainability. These principles include collaborative relationships, mutual respect and trust, shared knowledge, commitment, and shared responsibility, sustainable transition initiatives, and shared infrastructure for data collection.1 These principles align with the 2010 Institute of Medicine Future of Nursing report.2.
