Original Source The American Organization of Nurse Executives has received a grant to support the Resourcefully Enhancing Aging in Specialty Nursing initiative. The $17,000 grant from the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at the New York University College of Nursing will allow AONE to expand its Guiding Principles for the Elder-Friendly Hospital/Facility to include the role of nurse executives and how they can better provide an elder-friendly hospital environment. In addition, a toolkit that supports those concepts and themes will be developed and reside on a Web site dedicated to elder friendly health care. REASN is a four-year program funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies (USA) that works with specialty nursing associations to enhance their members’ competency in caring for older adults.
