Practice/Academe Innovative Collaboration Award
Indiana University School of Nursing and Indiana University Health
This partnership, which began more than a decade ago, consists of leaders from the Indiana University School of Nursing and the Indiana University Health Department of Nursing. The formal partnership led by Dean Marion E. Broome and Executive Vice-President and Chief Nurse Executive Linda Q. Everett is guided by the IUNLP model, which depicts the resources, linkages, and outcomes that support and flow from the partnership. The model has five components: Exemplary Nursing Practice, Transformative Learning Experiences, Transformational Leadership, Knowledge Generation/Translation/Application, and Resources. The ultimate goal of the IUNLP is to transform the health of our communities: staff, patients, learners, and leaders in both the academic and health care systems.
