EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

GNP Project

Mountain States Health Corporation has been awarded a threeyear grant by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation to facilitate the recruitment, education, and practice of RNs presently working in longterm care in the 11 Western states. Nurses attend one of five participating universities (University of Washington, Seattle; University of California, San Francisco; University of Arizona, Tucson; University of Colorado, Denver; State University of New York, Syracuse) to become certified Geriatric Nurse Practitioners. Financial assistance is available through the Kellogg grant and is contingent upon facility participation in the project.

For additional information contact: Priscilla Ebersole, Field Director, GNP Project, Mountain States Health Corporation, Box 6756, Boise, ID 83707. 208/342-4666.

Seton Hall GNP Grant

The United States Department of Health and Human Services has awarded the Seton Hall University College of Nursing a three-year grant of $333,536 to support and expand the graduate program that prepares Gerontological Nurse Practitioner/Clinical Specialists in Primary Health Care of the Aged.

Professor Leona Kleinman, program director, said the 42-credit program culminates in the award of a master of science degree in nursing. The curriculum embraces three semesters plus one summer session and has produced 43 graduates since the inception of the program in 1978.

Under the Seton Hall program, the students' first clinical experiences involve "healthy" aged individuals. Chosen practice sites are community settings such as senior citizens' centers, high-rise apartment buildings for senior citizens, and boarding homes for aged veterans.

During the second semester, the students begin to assume management of clients' health programs. Sites selected for this phase of the program are those that provide a full range of services to aged clients, including laboratory, x-ray, and other diagnostic services. At each site physicians who support the efforts of the Gerontologie Nurse Practitioner are available to serve as preceptors.

During the third semester, students develop the primary health care role in an extended care facility. They also continue to provide primary health care to their panel of clients in the ambulatory care setting.

Persons interested in obtaining further information about Seton Hall University's Gerontological Nurse Practitioner program should contact Professor Leona Kleinman, College of Nursing, Seton Hall University, South Orange, NJ.
