Sigma Theta Tau International Foundation for Nursing has been awarded a $350,000 grant from The Atlantic Philanthropies to develop a business plan for improving nursing home care nationwide. The grant money will be used to implement the Nursing Home Collaborative, a partnership between the honor society, the John A. Hartford Centers of Geriatric Nursing Excellence, and the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The goal of the collaborative is to improve geriatric care in nursing facilities by providing leadership and evidence-based care resources to nurses who lead interdisciplinary teams.
