    Abstract

    This article describes the partnership formed between long-term care (LTC) staff nurses and clinical nursing faculty to provide students with excellent clinical experiences in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The nurses, called Clinical Education Liaisons, contributed to faculty understanding about LTC and served as resources for students. Faculty provided ongoing mentorship about current trends in clinical education. An in-person interactive training program prepared the nurses and faculty for their new partnership roles. Evaluation results indicate the Enriching Clinical Learning Environments through Partnerships program was successful, with all LTC nurses indicating they would participate in the program again. They also reported that the students had contributed to their organizations and were being well prepared for future practice.
