The GMR is happy to announce that a phase three iteration of Nursing Experts: Translating the Evidence (NExT) has been awarded for year five of our five-year cooperative agreement with the National Library of Medicine. Since 2001, the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Library of the Health Sciences and the College of Nursing have been engaged in a series of evidence-based education programs targeted to public health nurses. One of the objectives of this project is to provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for acute/ambulatory care as well as public health nurses. By providing evidence-based education programs, the NExT project assists hospitals in their quest to achieve Magnet status.
Primary investigator for the project is Krista Jones, DNP, MSN, RN, PHNA-BC, Director, UIC Nursing-Urbana Campus, Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Population Health Science, Urbana Campus. Project partners include University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Nursing (UICCON) at Urbana; UIC, Library of the Health Sciences (LHS); Western Illinois University, School of Nursing; Carle Foundation Hospital; UI Health Hospital; Graham Hospital; Champaign-Urbana Public Health District; and the Vermilion County Health Department.
