Partners Investing in Nursing’s Future: Mass./Rhode Island IPE Project
Health care educators in Massachusetts and Rhode Island have collaborated around nursing and other health professions education for years. The Partners Investing in Nursing’s Future (PIN) project, Building a Regional Institute for Inter-Professional Education, highlighted in this video, shows how they worked together to build an institute to strengthen inter-professional education (IPE) in the region.
Building on the competencies of teamwork and collaboration, quality, safety and evidence-based practice, the project focused on the development of a regional learning community linking IPE partnerships -- including nursing, medicine, pharmacy and social work -- across Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
PIN, a multi-year partnership between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Northwest Health Foundation, supported the capacity, involvement and leadership of local foundations to advance the nursing profession in their own communities, including by preparing nurses with the skills needed to serve an older and more diverse population.
