A Day in the Life of a Geriatric Nurse Practitioner – October CARE Connections

How do advanced practice nurses lead efforts to ensure quality care for older adults? Read the October issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the School of Nursing’s Center for Aging Research and Education.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Geriatric nursing is complex and provides many opportunities to affect positive changes with individual patients, families and communities,” says Endicott. “Providing excellent care for older adults means learning about their rich histories—not just health histories, but family life, support systems, goals and worldview.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of CARE Affiliate and SoN Clinical Professor Paula Jarzemsky, and news and events relevant to older adult health, along with a list of SoN tools to put into practice.
