CSUB Nursing Department Receives Grant To Create Case Studies for Use Throughout Nation

California State University, Bakersfield’s Department of Nursing has been selected as one of two sites in the nation to create case studies for the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Nursing faculty will use a $40,000 APTR grant to develop five case studies to contribute to the national CDC repository for immunization resources supporting undergraduate nursing education.  The CSUB team includes Drs. Heidi He, Denise Dawkins, and Annie Huynh and Maria Rubolino.

“It is an honor that the Department of Nursing was selected to create these case studies,” said Dr.  Phyllis Heintz, chair of the CSUB Department of Nursing.  “Undergraduate nursing programs throughout the country will use the immunization case studies developed by CSU Bakersfield nursing faculty.”

The CSUB team’s work will be completed by Aug. 14.

APTR provided the grant to develop educational case studies in five areas: legal/ethical, vaccine administration, communication, vaccine-preventable diseases, and immunization strategies.  The University of Missouri was the only other institution to receive a grant to create case studies.

Since 1990, APTR has partnered with CDC and other professional organizations to assess immunization training needs of health professionals and develop appropriate programs, publication workshops, presentations, articles, and websites based on those assessments.
