Nursing Education Perspectives: January 19, 2021 - Volume - Issue - doi: 10.1097/01.NEP.0000000000000779 Buy PAP Metrics Abstract Nurse educators must create meaningful learning for students while addressing the needs of a rapidly changing health care system. Academic-practice partnerships help ensure that students are up-to-date on current practices while faculty and students partner to support the needs of the practice institution. To address a health care system’s high amputation rates, school of nursing faculty developed a concept-based learning activity to assess and educate patients at risk for amputation. Results included increased student learning that can be applied to other practice settings and improved outcomes for the health care system. © 2021 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
