Through the Veterans Affairs Nursing Academic Partnership (VANAP), nursing students and faculty participated in practice innovations in a Veterans Affairs Health Care System. Students were placed in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Through activities such as postconferences and population-based projects, they joined forces with Veterans Affairs staff on issues that affected veterans' health care. Student placements in settings across the care continuum improved communication between the settings. The enhanced partnership between the 2 organizations addressed a relevant, meaningful patient care issue.
