In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and recent state-level practice regulation changes, one health system sought innovative strategies to prepare new to practice registered nurses (RNs) to directly enter the specialty of emergency nursing. The emergency department (ED) nurse leaders and educators collaborated with an affiliated college of nursing to develop an academic–practice partnership for prelicensure students interested in emergency nursing. The program included both classroom-based instruction and clinical learning in the health system’s EDs. A descriptive study was completed to evaluate the program participants’ opinions regarding the classroom-based and clinical learning experiences during this program, as well as their plans for employment as RNs.
