Clinical Teaching in Nursing Homes
A web-based resource has been designed for faculty in schools of nursing to assist in developing and/or strengthening student clinical experiences in nursing homes. The central component to this web resource is a case study which simulates the identification and development of a clinical site experience for students in a nursing home. In the simulation, you are the faculty member developing this clinical experience that is associated with a required geriatric nursing course for your students. Resources, including four online modules, are included to help you complete the simulation.

This web resource was developed through funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) (D62HP15053). The purpose of the project, supported by this funding, is to increase the clinical teaching capacity of nursing faculty in nursing homes. Ten regional workshops were held in four states from 2009-2012 on Successful Clinical Teaching in Nursing Homes. The content from these workshops was used to develop this web resource. The workshop is available to any group of faculty and/or nursing home staff in the country. Contact the project director, Christine Mueller (firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-626-4922), if you would like to know more about how you could have this workshop in your area.
