Ecumen and Minnesota State University, Mankato, are teaming up to help address the state’s acute shortage of nurses working in long-term geriatric care.
Nursing faculty from across the state will gather in Mankato August 7-9, 2018, for a grant-funded pilot workshop designed to help educators refresh their knowledge and skills in senior care and bring current best practices in geriatrics into their classrooms and clinical settings.
Ecumen Scholars, a workforce development initiative created to address the nursing shortage in rural Minnesota, is now accepting applicants to its fellowship and internship programs for Summer 2015. The program is a collaboration of Ecumen and Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU).
For Ecumen Scholar Fellowship and Internship Program information, visit www.ecumenscholars.org, where online applications are being accepted until Midnight on February 28, 2015.
Working with Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU), Ecumen is creating the Ecumen Scholars program to provide educational, vocational and financial opportunities for nursing students to pursue careers in senior health care.
