Clinical Education Pilots

The New Jersey Nursing Initiative awarded four grants for Innovations in Clinical Education based upon a demonstrated partnership between an accredited school of nursing and a practice organization utilizing one of the three following strategies: A Dedicated Education Unit (DEU); Preceptor strategies such as models to develop clinical nurses as preceptors; Clinical simulation to connect classroom and clinical learning. Although the pilot funds have concluded, many aspects of the original models are still being practiced and upheld in the respective institutions.
