New ELNEC-Undergraduate Online Curriculum Available in January 2017

The ELNEC–Undergraduate online curriculum is complete. In the first 6 months since its debut on January 4, 2017, over 90 Schools of Nursing have enrolled their students into this online course. The testimonials from faculty and students have been overwhelmingly positive (see below). To review the outline, objectives, FAQ, press releases, new palliative care competencies (CARES), and to view a 2-minute trailer which demonstrates the format of every module, visit the ELNEC Academy website. Remember, if you live/teach in WA, OR, ID, or UT, your students will have free access to these modules for one year, thanks to generous funds provided by the Cambia Healthcare Foundation. For those living in the other 46 states, the cost is $29/student for 12 months of access. Questions, contact Lauren Wilson at lrwilson@coh.org.
