What People are Saying About the Curriculum
I am sharing with all the NPs and NP organizations that I am involved with. That is the value of such a product. Forensic nurses all need to share their wealth of knowledge with others who have less expertise. I know I will use it in my undergrad and graduate courses as well as the Geriatric NP students! Great job.
As a nurse educator, I think this is a wonderful resource to help faculty provide information about elder maltreatment to nursing students. As IAFN members, this is a great opportunity to network with our states' schools of nursing to promote scholarship in forensic nursing and to demonstrate IAFN's leadership. Members can send the link to your area's nursing schools' directors in a "Dear Colleague" type email for a personal invitation to share the curriculum with faculty members.
