Karen M. Mack, Mattia J. Gilmartin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As NICHE enters its fourth decade, it is a nursing innovation that has endured and adapted to meet the needs of older adults by fortifying the geriatric nursing workforce. Examining “Why NICHE and why now?” to guide NICHE implementation is important for the NICHE program and its members. The next steps for the NICHE community aim to build on our collective strengths, deepen integration with established geriatric quality programs and nursing professional organization partners, and increase the adoption of the NICHE practice model. These priorities and ways NICHE members may join in achieving them are outlined in this month's column.
