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.

Duke University School of Nursing was recently awarded the 2018 American Assembly of Men in Nursing (AAMN) Best School or College of Nursing Award.

GWEP Fellows Focus on Community-Based Geriatric Care

The Duke Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) focuses on strengthening the capacity of health care providers to provide patient-centered coordinated care to the geriatric community. One of the ways that GWEP is supporting this initiative is through supporting gerontologically focused nurse practitioner fellows. The fellowship supports adult/gerontology nurse practitioners’ transition into practice and expands their leadership skills in the integration of geriatrics into primary care.
