Two components of the Magnet Recognition Program(R) are exemplary professional practice and the generation of new knowledge through research and clinical innovation. Within Magnet(R) institutions, exemplary professional practice is evidenced by collaboration. Hospitals and schools of nursing can develop collaborative relationships to promote a culture of inquiry in clinical care and generate research to advance nursing practice and nursing science. The authors describe a collaborative model between clinical nurses and an academic nursing research center that promotes involvement of clinical nurses in research.
