New Resources for Nurse Faculty Help Integrate Geriatrics into Undergraduate Teaching In Hospitals and Nursing Homes
Jan 7, 2011
The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University College of Nursing has created two sets of resources for nursing faculty and clinical instructors to help them guide students in caring for older adults, in both hospital and nursing-home settings. More than 50% of hospital patients, 80% of home care patients, and 90% of residents of nursing homes are over age 65, yet the instructors who supervise students may have had little geriatric content in their own education.
