Bringing Nursing Curriculum to Life

At Duke, we bring curriculum to life for our students to help make connections between theory, practice and improving care for those we serve. In one of our ABSN courses, Gerontological Nursing—Caring for Older Adults and their Families, students learn about caring for an aging population and helping patients’ caregivers. Faculty employ three unique approaches to engage the minds and hearts of our students as they learn to care for vulnerable elders and their families.
