UC College of Nursing Partners with the Hartford Institute

Cincinnati--The University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Nursing announced a partnership with the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University's Division of Nursing that will serve to enhance gerontology content in the educational curriculum.

In order to assure that elders across the country age with optimal function, comfort and dignity, the Hartford Institute is launching a new national initiative entitled Partners for Dissemination of Best Practices in Care for Older Adults. With this initiative, the institute is inviting baccalaureate schools of nursing and staff development educators at health care facilities to become partners in a two-part program to help faculty integrate this content into existing courses. The program provides both faculty and clinical leadership development workshop designs and curriculum and staff in-service lesson plans.

Evelyn Fitzwater, DSN, RN, associate professor of clinical nursing, will serve as the coordinator of the project at UC. For more information, please contact Fitzwater at 513-558-5287.
