Abstract

This article describes the continued evolution of the Geriatric Resource Nurse Model at the University of Virginia, one of the original NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders) sites established in 1994. The model developed slowly, unit by unit, a few nurses at a time, and has evolved with a multidisciplinary focus. Flexibility, mentoring relationships, a core curriculum, additional stimulating educational offerings, and a strong leadership team have been key influences on sustainability and growth.
