Northborough resident begins hospice nurse residency
DANVERS — Katelyn Lowe, of Northborough, is among the class of eight nurses who started a hands-on hospice nurse residency program at Care Dimensions.
Developed in 2015, in partnership with Regis College’s Nursing Program, the nurse residency training program is offered to both new nursing graduates and experienced nurses as a way to develop qualified hospice nurse case managers.
Care Dimensions, along with Regis College, were the recipients of a $249,000 Massachusetts Healthcare Workforce Transformation Fund Training Grant, which was awarded to encourage economic growth by supporting innovation in the Commonwealth’s health care industry. The two organizations have been working together to develop and implement two training initiatives – a nurse residency program and the creation of online learning modules for clinical staff. Both initiatives are aimed at enhancing health care staff engagement and retention, and ultimately enhancing patient care.
