Abstract

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 throughout the design and implementation of the project; and use of evaluation at each phase of the implementation process to improve on the outcomes.
