Message From The Executive Director
Welcome to Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystems Elders (NICHE),
a national program of NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing.
I invite you to join the growing network of healthcare delivery
organizations dedicated to creating age-friendly care for an aging nation.
Our award-winning nursing practice model positions nurses to
lead substantive changes in the design and delivery of nursing
care to improve clinical outcomes, reduce cost of care, and meet
national quality goals. Our cost-effective and scalable practice
model develops workforce competences in geriatric nursing and
integrates evidence-based practice guidelines that enables nurses
to manage common health conditions and hospital-aquired
complications that disproportionately affect older adults.
I thank the nurse leaders who are the heart and soul of the NICHE
program for their dedication to achieve new heights of professional
practice and sustainable changes in care of older adults.
Please explore our website to learn more about our work and how
to become a NICHE member to promote age-friendly nursing care
for older adults in your organization.
