Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention grant- NEPQR

This project is part of the Nurse Education, Practice, Quality and Retention (NEPQR) Initiative and was funded for three years by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). This grant reflects a practice/education partnership between the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing, the NYU College of Nursing, the NYU Silver School of Social Work, the Touro College of Pharmacy, and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York.

Utilizing a community-based health care system and integrating a process for interprofessional education, the project will demonstrate an innovative model that:

  • Cultivates a practice environment in which nurses have an opportunity to demonstrate leadership in interprofessional team building, collaborative problem solving and care coordination;
  • Provides interprofessional clinical training opportunities for nursing students; and
  • Demonstrates innovation in IPCP
