VNA Receives Grant for Web-based Education Portal
CABEM has been engaged by VNA Care Network of Worcester, MA to develop a web-based education portal for home health clinicians. VNA Care Network is the second largest Visiting Nurse Association in the country, serving patients in over 200 Massachusetts communities. The VNA Care Network was awarded a federal HRSA Grant in 2003 to address nursing recruitment and retention in light of the national nursing shortage. Using these grant funds, the VNA and CABEM will develop a web-based portal that will allow the VNA to offer education, developed within its grant funded programs, within a web-based platform.
