Abstract: We propose the time is right for the Scholarship of Engagement to serve as a model of scholarship in schools of nursing given the shift towards community- based research and the emphasis of community- based research in the recently published National Institutes of Health (NIH) roadmap initiative. Thus, this article addresses the need of nursing academe to embrace a broader paradigm of scholarship, the Scholarship of Engagement, in order to expand knowledge development via implementation of the NIH roadmap. The need for implementation of a broader paradigm of nursing science within the context of nursing academics‘ roles is discussed.
