Although nursing care has changed signifi cantly over the past 30 years, methods to clinically train nursing students have not. The traditional model of clinical nursing education, where a faculty member oversees a group of six to eight students on an acute care unit for a 4- to 8-hour shift, provides a haphazard approach to learning. A need exists to fi nd innovative ways to eff ectively train more nursing students to better prepare them for today's health care environment. Using a change framework, seven approaches to clinical nursing education were created through academic-practice partnerships. These approaches may increase the eff ectiveness and effi ciency of the clinical nursing education system.
