Abstract

The Densford Clinical Scholars Program at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing partners advanced practice nurses and faculty members to design and conduct clinical studies for improving patient care. Benefits have included changes in nursing practice and, on occasion, the practice of other members of the healthcare team; enhanced research skills for clinicians; an enriched professional practice environment; access to clinical facilities for faculty; funding for research; and an expanded network for professional development. The authors describe this innovative partnership.
