5 Vision For The Partnership Best Partners for Best Practices A formal structural partnership will create a synergy for continuous quality improvement in both the education and practice of nursing. Furthermore, it will advance an organizational model consistent with the underlying philosophy of operation of an academic Health Sciences Center as a component of a university.
