New ELNEC-Undergraduate Online Curriculum Available in January 2017
In an effort to assist nursing faculty in meeting the new palliative care competencies, the Cambia Health Foundation (CHF) has provided $800,000 to fund and support the development of an interactive online curriculum, ELNEC-For Undergraduates. The online format will make this curriculum available to all 92 nursing programs in the CHF grant-funded project states (Idaho, Utah, Oregon and Washington), beginning in January 2017. The other 46 states will also have access to ELNEC-For Undergraduates for a nominal fee. See the flyer below.
