With the increasing enrollment of advanced practice nursing students (APN) and the increasing literature supporting interprofessional simulation encouraging a team-based approach for safe patient care, a new clinical relationship among our APN (AGACNP and Midwifery) and BSN (Levels 4 and 5) students has been created at our college. This partnership has yielded an experience rich with collaboration, communication, and collective problem solving for patient care. Both BSN and APN students have gained more experience in: clear SBAR communication, working collaboratively and advocating for patient safety during the simulations in which they practice together. The intraprofessional nursing experience yields prepared, professional, and therapeutic practitioners thus increasing the quality of patient outcomes.
