Several nursing practice models use nurse extenders/partners to extend nurses' time. The authors discuss the development, implementation, and evaluation of the "partner in patient care" (PIPC) model. Unique aspects of the model are emphasized, including use of a collaborative process to generate the design and guide the implementation; staff participation(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify the effects of an empirically-designed nursing practice model on the outcome variables of job satisfaction, autonomy, and retention/turnover of nursing staff. After 6 months significant differences were found on the experimental unit in overall job satisfaction, and on the subscales of job satisfaction in task(More)
The purpose of this experimental research was to determine the effects of the Partners in Care Practice Model (PIPC) on the outcomes of productivity and costs. Over an 18-month study period, no significant differences were found in costs per patient day between the pilot and control units; however, significant differences were found in actual salaries,(More)
Redesigning patient care delivery is vital to the quality of care delivered and has resulted in the development of new nursing practice models that use some form of "nurse extender." In this article, the authors describe the design, implementation, and evaluation of an educational program for a new nursing practice model at a medical center in the(More)
This outcomes research used a collaborative framework between a college of nursing and a medical center to test the effects of the Partners in Patient Care delivery model (PIPC) on clinical and nonclinical outcomes. An experimental pretest-postest design was used to compare selected nonclinical outcomes and clinical outcomes of care in two patient units.(More)
With the growing use of multiple types of nurse extenders in new patient care-delivery models, there is a need not only for outcome research on their design and use but for identification and discussion of effective team-building processes necessary to implementing these models. This article presents an analysis of the interdisciplinary team process and the(More)
