Successful Clinical Teaching In Nursing Homes, a one-day workshop for nursing faculty and their nursing home clinical partners, was held Friday, September 16, at the Elim Rehab and Care Center in Fargo, ND.
This interactive workshop provided effective and innovative strategies to teach geriatric nursing in a nursing home setting. The unique aspect to this workshop is that faculty worked collaboratively with colleagues from their nursing home clinical partners to co-create meaningful learning opportunities for students to learn about the role of the registered nurse in providing care for nursing home residents.
Faculty from the University of Minnesota School of Nursing and the Minnesota Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence (MnHCGNE) facilitated the workshop. Laurissa Stigen, Executive Director of Central Minnesota Area Health Education Center provided information on some upcoming long-term care education opportunities as well as how the partners are working together.
There was no cost for the workshop. The facility, continental breakfast, lunch, and refreshment breaks were all generously provided by Elim Rehab and Care Center.
