Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This case study in collaboration development describes the relationship from initiation through maintenance over three years between a high profile research-focused school of nursing in the U.S. and a school in the UK known for learning and teaching innovation. The ultimate goal of the collaboration is to enhance nursing student learning opportunities to best prepare students to function in the complex and ever-changing world of nursing practice. This goal has been, and continues to be, achieved through implementation of innovative teaching and learning strategies including the use of high fidelity simulation. The authors describe the intellectual collaborative advantage that the relationship between the schools has made possible as well as key principles to be considered when any organization is contemplating a collaboration.
