The current need to increase numbers of critical care nurses presents an exciting opportunity for nurses in staff development. Partnerships forged between university faculty and nurses have potential to recruit students into critical care settings. This article describes a course taught by faculty and practicing nurses that encourages students to pursue careers in critical care. The success of this initiative provides evidence that academic and clinical partnerships can develop a critical care nurse workforce.
