CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Patricia Conard and Julie Fomenko, both Clinical Assistant Professors of Nursing at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, were selected to attend the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) for Veterans Train-the-Trainer course held November 14-15 in San Antonio, Texas.

Conard and Fomenko are two of more than 14,000 nurses and other interdisciplinary team members to date to attend a national or international ELNEC Train-the-Trainer course since 2000. The training provides information and resources to offer end-of-life and palliative care education to other nursing faculty and nursing students.

The ELNEC project is a national education program to improve end-of-life care by nurses. ELNEC is a partnership of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) in Washington, D.C., and the City of Hope (COH) in Duarte, Calif.
