LONG-TERM TRAINING PROJECTS
These grants help colleges and universities provide scholarships to students interested in pursuing careers in rehabilitation nursing. Rehabilitation nurses play an important role as a member of the inter-disciplinary team, working cooperatively with rehabilitation counselors, social workers, occupational and physical therapists and physiatrists. Rehabilitation nurses begin to work with individuals and their families soon after a disabling injury or chronic illness strikes, and they are still there after the individuals go home, back to school, or to work. During that time, rehabilitation nurses help these people function as independently as possible and minimize complications of injury or illness. They accomplish this goal by educating, motivating, and working with individuals and their families, friends, and employers. They also coordinate funding sources and community assistance programs.
