Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College, in partnership with the Division of Rheumatology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, received an Educating Nurses in Rheumatology with Certificate Initiative grant through Pfizer’s Independent Grants for Learning and Change program. Goldfarb received a $160,000 grant that will be used to support student tuition for two years.
“This is an excellent program for students who wish to expand their education and add an enhanced rheumatologic specialty experience.” Said Lisa Burnitt, DNP, RN, ANP-BC, Goldfarb assistant professor and director of the adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner program.
Students interested in the program must complete four and a half rheumatology focused credit hours in order to earn the certification. Clinicals are prearranged through the Division of Rheumatology at Washington University. The first 15-week program will begin in May 2019.
