"Academic Nursing Practice" can be a living laboratory that integrates the education, practice, and research mission of a school of nursing. Where better to demonstrate the efficacy of new practice models and interventions, identify questions for further study, teach students, and keep faculty skills fresh?

This book describes how to develop and implement these nurse-managed practices, based on the extensive experience of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, along with case examples from other programs. Practical strategies described include securing university support, outside funding, and academic-community partnerships.

"Academic Nursing Practice" offers an opportunity for nursing to exert leadership on the pressing issues facing today's health care system --access, quality, and cost. This book is an excellent resource to begin planning for one.
