Nurse Scientist Partnership

The Kaiser Permanente Nurse Scientist Partner position functions primarily at the local service area/medical center level but the appointment/position is established through the regional office of the Southern California Nursing Research Program. This position is a collaborative and reciprocal partnership between a faculty member at a college or university and the Kaiser Permanente (KP) Southern California Nursing Research Program. The purpose of the position is to advance nursing science and improve patient outcomes through the development of both the nurse scientist and KP nurses.

In return for contributing their scientific expertise and time, the Nurse Scientist is given a non-funded appointment which potentially allows for access to internal research resources. This access is subject to Kaiser Permanente rules and regulations.

The goal of the Nurse Scientist Partner is to nurture the development of nurses to participate in research and to develop the knowledge and evidence that supports best nursing practices
