Identifying and Disseminating Promising Models for Nursing Education Curricula: Incorporating and Strengthening Population Health

Participants learned about a new project between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the Center to Champion Nursing in America (CCNA), an initiative of AARP Foundation, AARP and RWJF, to identify and disseminate promising models that incorporate and strengthen population health into nursing education curricula.  This work is built, in part, on the recently published RWJF report, Catalysts for Change: Harnessing the Power of Nurses to Build Population Health in the 21st Century. Reviewers will be looking for model programs with the potential to:

  • Identify and standardize core competencies and concepts into curricula
  • Develop evaluation metrics for student outcomes
  • Maximize opportunities for educational programs to partner meaningfully with practice sites, for their mutual benefit
  • Pilot test model programs
  • Plan for scalability
  • Align with health care system and population health needs-now and in the future

Findings will include a compilation of nursing education programs that are integrating population health across the curriculum and several of these nursing programs will be chosen for a site visit in summer 2018.  The results from these interviews and site visits will be compiled into a report with recommendations for nursing educators and practitioners and be widely disseminated.
