Theory-based nursing practice positively influences many outcomes in healthcare organizations. As a response to limited human and economic resources, a college of nursing and a for-profit healthcare organization worked in partnership to develop a project that focused on developing and demonstrating the value of a dedicated education unit grounded in caring theory. The authors describe the development of the project, initial outcomes, and the relevance to nursing administration.
