Abstract

The purpose of this article is to describe the development and implementation of a shared position with a focus on evidence-based practice (EBP) between the Visiting Nurse Service of New York and the Lienhard School of Nursing, Pace University. A preexisting relationship between the two institutions in providing student experiences in a community setting paved the way for the evolution a new collaborative effort. The shared position was initially conceived by two of the authors as an outcome of research they were conducting in the home care setting, which tested a model of mentoring frontline nurses in the EBP process on health care professional and patient outcomes. An initial conception of the new role provided a working document for discussions between the two institutions and the creation of a workable contract. The implementation of several initiatives has already provided support for the position, and each partner has benefited from building this bridge between nursing education and service. Benefits include advancing knowledge of and implementing EBP in both settings and promoting collaborative, clinically related scholarship.
