The office of Transformational Practice and Partnerships, headed by Associate Dean Kate Fiandt, began in 2014 to bring together the collaborative efforts of the College of Nursing and enhance the college’s ongoing mission of transforming nursing practice through interprofessional partnerships.
Building on the missions of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Nebraska Medicine and the College of Nursing, the mission of the Office of Transformational Practice and Partnerships is to improve the health of individuals, families, and communities using interprofessional teams which provide sustainable solutions through innovative, nurse-led community partnerships.
The office of Transformational Practice and Partnership’s work supports the improvement of health through direct patient care, quality professional development initiatives, and collaboration with partners across the state, region, and world.
- All team members are supported to practice their profession at the top of their scope and are encouraged to develop personally and professionally.
- We monitor outcomes with an emphasis on high quality and cost effective services while maintaining high client satisfaction.
- We operate within a business model that supports long-term sustainability.
- Our work supports the UNMC and CON education and research missions by welcoming students into our teams and creating opportunities for scholarship within all programs.
