ELNEC-Core was the first of the ELNEC curricula to be developed, specifically addressing end-of-life needs of adults. It debuted in January 2001 in Pasadena, CA. In the first three years of the project, thanks to funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), over 900 baccalaureate and associate degree nursing faculty attended a national ELNEC-Core train-the-trainer course. This represented 65% of baccalaureate nursing programs nationally. From one-year post-course data, it is estimated that these 900 nursing faculty used ELNEC-Core to train 45,000 nursing students. In turn, continuing education providers and staff development educators attended ELNEC-Core within the first 3 years of the project. According to the data received from one-year post-course surveys, these nursing educators provided education at various levels within the organization and in diverse clinical settings to 11,200 nurses.
