Kent, Ohio-Life Flight Experience Added to ACNP Curriculum

Through a new collaboration between Kent State College of Nursing, Kent, Ohio, and the MetroHealth System, Cleveland, students in the acute care nurse practitioner concentration are gaining clinical experience aboard Metro Life Flight helicopters.

A Metro Life Flight helicopter visited Kent State University Oct. 22 to publicly announce the collaboration, which started during the fall semester.

"Students who have had the Metro Life Flight clinical experience recognize that they will be uniquely positioned to work with trauma patients," said Gail Bromley, PhD, RN, associate dean. "Their education and training with the Metro Life Flight interdisciplinary team supports the professional development of more empowered nurses who will be prepared to care for complex patients."

Christinna Haire, MSN, RN, CRNP, director of the adult gerontology acute care nurse practitioner program, along with faculty members Louann Bailey, MSN, CRNP, and Ellen Prewitt, MSN, ACNP-BC, CPNP-AC, established the program guidelines and student outcome goals for the life flight experiences.
