Stanek Receives Grant to Address Shortage of RN’s in Home Health and Hospice Agencies

Dr. JoAn Stanek, Assistant Professor at the School of Nursing, in partnership with Transitions LifeCare, have been selected to participate as a pilot site for a project funded by the State Employees Credit
Union Foundation and the Golden LEAF Foundation to “Address the Serious Shortage of RN’s in Home Health and Hospice Agencies.”

The grant is sponsored by the Hospice and Home Care Foundation of NC. The aims of the project are:

1) to increase opportunities for our pre-licensure BSN students to experience an extensive immersive experience in both home and in-center hospice and palliative
home care during their clinical capstone in the final semester of their senior year, and

2) to develop a standardized on-boarding process to successfully integrate newly graduated RN’s into hospice and home health palliative care at Transitions LifeCare.
