LNA Boot Camp

This three-day education program combines didactic and case-based discussions along with experiential learning sessions.

Utilizing and expanding on the John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing's Geriatric Patient Care Associate (GPCA) course curriculum (2nd ed.). Case-based discussion based on the "How to Try This" video presentation series will augment didactic presentations.

The intent of this three-day program is to integrate the evidenced-based program core curriculum with patient-centered models of care such as Learn, Empower, Achieve, and Produce (LEAP) and Green House Workforce initiatives.

Concepts will come to life during experiential learning labs that include standardized patients, use of the Patient Safety Training Center, and the geriatric medical home learning laboratory as a member of an interdisciplinary team.
