- “As a lifelong acute nurse, I really found it very helpful and informative to learn so much about the outpatient and home care/monitoring/mentoring side of gerontology. I like the nursing care plans that are offered. They will definitely be of help in my current practice and I hope to share them with colleagues, as we have many new-to-practice RNs at our institution.”
- “I am a hospice case manager and educator for our new nurses. This course has already been beneficial with training nurses and helping them understand the population that is our primary clients.”
- “I highly recommend this course. Chances are most of us nurses will work with patients over 65 at some point in our careers and we need to be educated about their special needs and issues. This text presents current and useful information about this segment of our population.”
- “Beyond just the info, there was much thought provoking material in “Points to Ponder,” “Consider this Case,” “Critical Thinking exercises,” and “Practice Realities.” Unlike so many other education materials, I will be thinking/pondering many of these for some time. I am sorry that I am currently retired – I would be presenting many of these to staff for development.”
- “I worked for years in long-term care as assistant director of nurses and I found many new insights/ information in this text. This is very up-to-date information and probably should be required study for nursing home staff and/or anyone working with the geriatric population.”
