Bridging the Technological Gap between Academia & Practice The Joe Warner Teaching Nursing Home Project was developed with technological advancements serving as the cornerstone of project activities. Project goals of supporting curriculum development, mentoring, and recruitment experiences to bring registered nurses into long-term care could not be achieved without technological assistance. Technology was integrated into ongoing student activities and was viewed as key to moving the nursing home environment toward a different level of technological professionalism, similar to what nursing students and graduates are experiencing in acute care settings, thus increasing likelihood of nurse recruitment success for long-term care. Scheduling dilemmas and distance issues led the project team to develop such activities as Virtual Grand Rounds, case studies disseminated via distance education strategies (IP Video). Quality care initiatives and sharing of resources required nursing homes to have on-site, 24/7 internet access for students, faculty, and nursing home staff. Barriers to technological initiatives included network security issues, distribution and space/access problems related to nursing home equipment, ownership/upkeep responsibility decisions, ongoing access costs, and technological learning needs of nursing home staff. Strategies for overcoming technological barriers were developed and can be shared with others who are initiating projects in practice with technology in the forefront.
