Laurissa Stigen, Central Minnesota AHEC Executive Director, Vicki Teske, MS, GNP, BC, Assistant Professor at Minnesota State University Moorhead, Jane Strommen, Project Coordinator for North Dakota Partners in Nursing Gerontology Consortium Project, and Christine Mueller, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor and Co-director of the MnHCGNE.

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.
