Implementation of a geriatric care curriculum for Associate Degree RNs
This grant funds the implementation and evaluation phase of a project to provide education and experience in the care of geriatric patients for nursing students at Middlesex County College. Previous RWJF grants funded the feasibility study and curriculum design of this program. The revised curriculum will place emphasis on the care of the elderly in all four semesters of the AD program and provide more extensive clinical experience with geriatric patients in acute care, community, and long-term care facilities. In addition, educational programs for family members caring for the elderly and courses to certify home health aides will be developed and conducted.
