Carolyn Ackerman Ed.D MS RN CHPN, is from Arvada, Colo., and has almost 40 years of experience in home health and hospice. She actually discovered our Nurse On the Move
feature in a recent Home Healthcare Now journal article, Nurse on the Move: Lisa Gorski
, and thought to herself, “Well…why not [me]?”
I had the opportunity to speak to her over the phone to discover why she thought she would make a good candidate, and I am so glad she reached out to us at NursingCenter. Not only is Ackerman a registered nurse, but she is also an assistant professor at Regis University in Denver, and she is very involved in end-of-life interdisciplinary simulation.
Ackerman recently graduated from Creighton University with her Ed.D in interdisciplinary education. She created an end-of-life board game called The Path of Life: The Journey of Living at the End-of-Life © game
, where participants assume the role of the patient as they make decisions related to their terminal disease.
