Main description:

How can nurse educators creatively use evolving knowledge of care of older adults to effectively teach individualized, person-centered care for this vulnerable population?

This unique guide to curriculum development—built on the evidence-based, theoretical ACE.S framework—provides educator-ready strategies to integrate teaching care of older adults in creative ways.  

The book is filled with exemplars of how faculty—many of them NLN Hearst Foundations Award winners—applied the ACE.S framework to their unique curricula. Nurse educators using this resource can study the underpinnings of the ACE.S framework as a foundation for their use of the free resources provided on the NLN website (www.nln.org/ACES).
To the nurse educators who have the opportunity in these pages to learn about ACE.S, teach the underlying academic theory, and expose students to the unfolding cases and simulations, the Hearst Foundations are grateful to you for your commitment to nursing education and to preparing the next generation of this noble workforce to care for older adults.
