Grand Valley State University/Kirkhof College of Nursing (GVSU/KCON)View Partnership
The Bonnie Wesorick Center for Healthcare Transformation was founded at KCON in 2009 as a center for scholarship that will generate practical results in the nation’s daily health care practices. Based on the legacy of Co-Founder and Chair Emerita, Bonnie Wesorick, the Wesorick Center is now a fully endowed Center and on an accelerating path to tackle major issues such as person-centered care, cost reduction, interprofessional education and collaborative practices, and health care culture changes. In 2014, GVSU/KCON and the Wesorick Center announced the launch of the Interprofessional Polarity Thinking Institute. The Institute host annual workshops on this critical competency for healthcare leaders today, as well as continuing education activities. In 2016, Elsevier and GVSU/KCON announced a Collaborative Agreement to jointly study outcomes of organizations implementing the Elsevier Clinical Practice Model Framework.
University of Minnesota School of NursingView Partnership
Established in 1909, the School of Nursing is distinct in being the first continuing nursing program on a university campus. The first program leading to a baccalaureate degree began in 1919. A master’s degree program was first offered by the School of Nursing in 1950 and through the Graduate School beginning in 1962. The PhD program was launched in 1983. Today they have the largest graduate program at the University of Minnesota – with numerous areas of study – and a flagship baccalaureate program with an honors program option. The schools’ campuses are in the Twin Cities and the other in Rochester.
Our partnership focuses on the Implementation Science for implementing the Elsevier Clinical Practice Model Framework, our evidence-based products and professional practice services, with a special emphasis on the Professional Exchange process. We also contribute to the efforts of the Nursing Knowledge: Big Data Science community to advance an action plan to create sharable, comparable nursing data that is integrated into the electronic health record.
