An agreement has been reached between the Palomar Health Center for Nursing Excellence and the University of San Diego’s Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science to form a partnership dedicated to integrating nursing research at a system-wide level at all Palomar Health facilities.
The institutions announced the partnership Tuesday afternoon, stating they hope to provide quality training for a larger number of Ph.D. nurse scientists and advanced practice registered nurses. Administrators aim to make the partnership a national model of collaboration.
“Our experienced academic-service partnership team put careful thought into this model’s design with the intent for long term sustainability and for other communities across the country to replicate,” said Michael Covert, president and chief executive officer of Palomar Health.
More USD doctoral nursing faculty and students are expected to conduct dissertation and evidence-based projects at Palomar Health facilities as a result of the collaboration. The partnership district serves a population of more than 500,000 residents in an area that spans more than 800 square miles.
Dubbed the San Diego Place-Based Immersion Model, the academic-service partnership will be implemented by Palomar Health’s Brenda Fischer, director of the Center for Nursing Excellence, and USD Hahn School of Nursing Dean Sally Brosz Hardin, as well as USD’s Cynthia Connelly and Shelley Yerger Hawkins.
