Abstract:
This presentation will describe the evolution and advancement of the Center for Nursing Excellence in LTC (The Center). The mission of The Center is to improve the quality of care for older adults who recuperate and/or reside in skilled nursing centers by strengthening the role and competencies of RNs. RNs provide direct care to patients/residents, as supervisors, leaders, and coordinators of patient/resident care. They are directly responsible for the care that paraprofessionals provide. Due to these responsibilities it is critical that RNÆs in SNF settings have the evidence based resources and tools to effectively and safely manage the care of older adults.

The novel approach used to create The Center will be highlighted during this presentation. The Center began its development work by convening a broad group of stakeholders from both academia, including the directors and staff from the Hartford Centers for Geriatric Nursing Excellence and the provider community. A thorough literature synthesis was conducted through which common themes were identified. These themes were used as a basis for developing The Center and its programs and services. The stakeholders worked through their conflicts by relying on evidence coupled with practice realities to achieve consensus.

The Center has evolved, through a collaborative effort, into an organization that is developing and delivering a portfolio of nationally recognized services and products designed by experts in the field, based upon evidence and focused on enhancing the practice of RNs in SNFs.
