Jefferson Health – N.J. wins prestigious American Nursing Association grant for training

Jefferson Health – New Jersey said it recently received a grant award from the American Nurses Association to create a “Pretty Please: Personal Protective Equipment Roadshow” teaching event for clinical staff at the three Jefferson Health hospitals in New Jersey.

Jefferson Health – New Jersey Infection Control Officer Cindy Hou — who will lead the project — will present to staff, along with nurses and other educators, about PPE and other infection-control topics related to safety for frontline clinical staff. The training will be held in person at Jefferson’s three New Jersey campuses in Cherry Hill, Stratford and Washington Township.

Jefferson Health – New Jersey is one of only 15 partner organizations nationally to receive $8,000 in grant funding through the ANA to support and carry out the organization’s Project Firstline Infection Prevention and Control resources, ensuring frontline nurses and health care workers are up to date with the latest information.

“We have always had a strong commitment to ensuring the safety of our patients and our staff,” Hou said. “This training is yet another way we can ensure that our clinicians have the latest and most extensive training related to PPE.”
