"Teambuilding," "partnering," "outreach," and "collaboration" all are terms of the new millennium. Such terms suggest a continuing trend in healthcare. Partnering and collaboration are the hallmark of many successful models implemented by practice and academic healthcare settings worldwide. Strategic partnering, within and beyond institutions, provides opportunities for personal and professional growth, outreach, and collaboration. Within the global nursing community, cross-national partnerships represent a vehicle for extending knowledge sharing, and for using on-site visits, tele- and videoconferencing, electronic mail, and other resources. The World Wide Web has opened doors to distance learning programs that were once a dream, and that now represent reality. The author addresses the partnering concept and applications within the local healthcare community, within the country, and worldwide.
