Abstract:
Eastern Maine Community College Department of Nursing, Eastern Maine Healthcare System/Rosscare, and First Atlantic Corporation partnership nursing facilities have collaborated to obtain three year funding for a Geriatric Nurse Service Instructor position. The Instructor position is designed to help improve the basic associate degree nursing competencies in geriatric nursing as well as to enhance the geriatric nursing leadership and skill competencies of practicing RN staff in four long term care facilities. The core goals of the program include the integration of the use of evidence based practice at both the student and staff levels as well as to improve the nursing leadership skills at both levels to ensure a present and future stream of competent geriatric nurse leaders in the rural region. Initial program implementation has shown 1) increased student awareness and interest in working with older adults, and 2) increased geriatric nursing leadership education opportunities at the facility level. The presentation will focus on the tools, processes, and challenges/successes of implementation of this model of rural geriatric nursing education delivery through the eyes of the Geriatric Nurse Service Instructor.
