In 2009 the National League for Nursing (NLN) began a project to develop innovative teaching strategies to teach nursing students about care of older adults – the ACES project. The model that emerged included a Framework, a set of unfolding cases that include first person monologues, simulations, along with teaching strategies and toolkits to help faculty incorporate the content into their curriculum.
The project has greatly exceeded its original goal of providing tools to help faculty teach how to provide excellent care for a rapidly expanding geriatric population. In the early stages of development, a model emerged that has been used to create cases for care of Veterans, patients with Alzheimer’s disease, patients with disabilities and our newest, pediatrics. Additionally, from the time that the ACEs cases were posted on the NLN website in March 2011, they captured the imagination of faculty across the country who expanded them to incorporate other curricular endeavors. One group mapped the simulations in one unfolding case to the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies. Another recreated an unfolding case in Second Life. Still others expanded the simulations to include health professions students from other disciplines and redesigned the simulation template to reflect best practices in interprofessional education.
The presentation will discuss the strategies that proved successful in attracting funding from seven different funders and engage the audience in how these same strategies can be implemented on a smaller scale in their own institutions.
