We are thrilled to have recently announced our collaboration with NICHE - Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders, a nation-wide nursing education and consultation program designed to improve geriatric care in healthcare organizations through education and mentorship.
Faith-based hospital organizations recognize the impact of partnerships with their local faith-based communities. The important role of faith community nursing programs is to bridge the gap in helping congregational nurses to meet the needs of their faith communities.

As a geriatric nurse, I rather frequently see the effects of age and disease on the body. Of course, different diseases manifest in different ways, and while some of those signs and symptoms may mirror those of old age, others may not. As a result, it is important that I, and other geriatric nurses like me, recognize how Parkinson’s disease might affect a patient under our care so that we can better care for them and meet their needs.
