The National Hartford Centers of Gerontological Nursing Excellence (NHCGNE) has announced $1.2 million in awards to the latest cohort of Claire M.Fagin Fellows and Patricia G. Archbold Scholars studying gerontological nursing in academic settings across the U.S. OHSU School of Nursing faculty member Corey Nagel, Ph.D., M.P.H., R.N., and School of Nursing Ph.D. student Daniel Mick R.N., B.S., were among the recipients.
“This program contributes towards important recommendations of the Institute of Medicine’s report on the future of nursing that the nation provide more leadership training and opportunities for nurses and that we increase the number of doctorally prepared nurses,” said NHCGNE Executive Director J. Taylor Harden, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N. “These highly skilled scholars are deeply committed to improving health care for aging patients.”
Dr. Nagel is one of five individuals to receive the Claire M. Egan Fellowship. Fellows each receive up to $120,000 to support research training, mentorship, leadership, and career development.
Daniel Mick is one of six Patricia G. Archbold scholars who will receive a grant of up to $100,000 to support his doctoral training and to help him launch a career in academic gerontological nursing.
The 2014 cohort of Patricia G. Archbold Scholars and Claire M. Fagin Fellows are a highly qualified group of dedicated gerontological nurses who will strengthen the knowledge base in such areas as family caregiving, home health and hospice care, care for persons with stroke, and critical illness in elders.
OHSU was the only school in the nation to earn both awards in 2014.
