Summary or Abstract : As the discipline of nursing works collaboratively to strategically address global health needs, understanding the processes that assist in building and sustaining effective partnerships will continue to become increasingly important in the future. The purpose of the study was to understand how the contextual features of history, culture, setting, decision-making, and intercultural communication contribute to building and sustaining a successful international development partnership in higher education in nursing. A qualitative methodological framework guided the research process using case study research and participatory action research (PAR). The case study analyzed was of an established educational partnership between a Faculty of Nursing in Canada, and a School of Nursing in Ghana in the development of a Master of Philosophy. Participants included nursing/medical educators, leaders, and administrators in Canada and Ghana, and Ghanaian nursing students who described how they perceived their experiences with this international partnership. As part of the PAR process there was ongoing consultation with Management Committee members in Canada and Ghana, at various stages, during the research process. The findings revealed three phases of the partnering relationship among the Canadian and Ghanaian partners which were; Getting Started, Keeping it Going, and Following the Project. Further analysis of the data provided an in-depth understanding of three integral components; ease of communication, sharing of power, and focus on capacity building and seven key elements: shared and individual institutional goals; shared expertise; shared workload; shared leadership; adequate resources; mobilization of external resources ; and commitment to sustainability which provided the framework for understanding what contributed to a mutually satisfying partnering relationship and a successful outcome. Social and critical perspectives were used to offer a theoretical understanding of the complexities of the partnering relationship. The findings in this particular case study highlight the importance of the partnering relationship for a successful outcome and likelihood for sustainability in an international partnership in higher education in nursing. Nurse scholars engaged in similar international development projects may find the insights from this study, based upon collaborative reflections between the researcher and the Management Committee members, useful as a guide to developing a mutual and satisfying partnering relationship..
