The aim of this systematic review was to synthesize research in the last 5 years to report the current state of the science related to interprofessional education (IPE) in nursing. Findings suggest that more studies with rigorous research designs are needed to compare outcomes for interprofessional interventions and to determine the effectiveness of IPE on patient outcomes.
