Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) has been on my radar for quite awhile. Who or what is NICHE? I’ll let the organization speak to that:
"Started in 1992, Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) is the only national geriatric initiative to improve the care of older hospitalized adults. The NICHE program comprises nearly 300 hospitals throughout North America. NICHE is a program of the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University College of Nursing.
